I have not forgotten about my new and existing newsletter subscribers and have some catching up to do. These names were selected by a random number generator from my email subscriber list for March, April and May. Congratulations to the winners! Please read below to see what you have to do to get your portrait/painting created.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE WON
1. Find a one figure photo that is on good focus of your loved one and email it to me
2. If the painting is for a pet, let me know the breed and name
3. I will create a Custom listing via my Etsy store for you and will ask you to place an order . The order will show a few cents, but disregard that and choose OTHER for the check out ( no payment needed). As you might know I am crazy busy with portrait orders and going through Etsy is a way for me to keep track of all my outstanding orders and a place where you later can leave a review if you were happy with my work.
A digital portrait is a portrait that is created using a stylus and tablet on a computer. I have access to countless paint mediums, like oils, watercolors, acrylics, pen and ink, etc. and can merge these different mediums to create truly unique pieces of art. 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. Instead of spending countless hours on creating under paintings and watching paint dry I can spend time being creative with interesting backgrounds for your portraits.
Winners receive a 16x20 hand painted Digital Portrait File that can be printed on canvas or paper.

WATCH THE NEW PORTRAITS BEING PAINTED
Throughout the year all my readers will get to see the new portraits being painted via my blog posts that are send out in the weekly newsletter. I would love it if you pop in and leave a comment on the blog to let me know what you think. This is a great way for you to see what is possible with a custom painted portrait, since a portrait can be painted in many styles and finishes. I am sometimes asked to paint very modern looking pieces like "Charlie's Portrait" for example, which is full of bold and colorful brush strokes. Hard to believe this is a digital portrait isn't it?
Thank you all for subscribing and following my work. I am looking forward to see who I get to paint next. Person or pet?!
