January Portrait Winner

January Free Portrait Winner Announcement

January WInner

It's time for a new portrait raffle winner announcement. The January portrait raffle winner will receive a 8x10 in Digital portrait of a loved one, pet or person.


Michael Garrett 

Please submit one or two photos of a loved one (pet or person - 1 figure only) via the Contact link . I will use the colors in the background of your photo to create a loosely painted, semi-solid colored background. If you prefer a different color for the background let me know. Ones you approve the mock-up for your painting, you can follow the progress of your custom painted painting via my website. 

When the painting is finished I will send you a high-resolution JPG file of the painting via email. You can then print the image either at home or upload it to any print on demand center to be printed on canvas or paper. 

If you need a printer I can recommend Luma Prints ( https://www.lumaprints.com )

I have been working with them for years and love their print quality and customer service. My clients get a 50% discount if they use coupon code > portraitsbync when they order. It might be worth while to check out their rates.

When you upload the file please select a solid border for the canvas sides to avoid image cropping. Please let me know if you need help.

Your free portrait offer is valid for one month from the date this announcement is made and will expire if I have not received your photo submission by the end of the month. However, your name will be entered again in future raffles as long as you remain a subscriber.

What is a Digital Portrait?

digital portrait 

A digital portrait is a portrait that is created using a stylus and tablet on a computer. They are created at a fraction of the time it takes to paint an oil painting and are yet another way to own a Portraits-by-NC custom painted painting. With mediums that simulate the look of art mediums like oils, watercolors, acrylics, pen, and ink, etc. truly unique pieces of art can be created.

Every portrait is entirely hand painted by me and years of experience as a traditional oil painter allow me to create paintings that are truly special. It's a great way to receive a custom painted artwork in the form of a file that can be enjoyed as a print.


Your name is automatically entered once a month in the Portrait Giveaway. All you have to do is open your weekly newsletter and see if you have won.


Once you are a newsletter subscriber (click orange button at bottom of this page) and remain a subscriber, you are automatically entered into the monthly giveaway. Of course, you can invite friends and family members to enter as well. However, only one email address will count towards the random drawing.

Thank you all for subscribing and following my work.
