The Value of a Photograph
Sometimes, after someone is gone, all you have left is a photograph. We hold on dearly to the memory of our loved ones through our experiences and the photographs we keep.
Transforming a Family Photo into Art
Working with one of their most cherished memories from a heartfelt family gathering, I was able to isolate just the head and shoulders of their mother Joan from the group photo into a brand new work of art. Joan's warm and engaging expression was ideal as a reference image for her individual painted portrait.
Honoring Both Parents
Many years earlier, in the 1980's, a piece of art had been created by another artist of their father as a head and shoulders portrait painting. Today, the family can now also honor their mother's memory in a similar fashion. Both paintings are now on display at home.
A Daily Reminder of Her Love
Having meaningful portrait painting of Joan at home is a daily reminder that she is deeply missed and loved.

"When we work together, you'll be guided through each step of the process, know what to expect, and there will be no surprises about a person's likeness. In the end, you'll have the custom painting you have always envisioned."
Bobbie Bush, portrait artist
