After visiting Gabrielle’s home in February, I was commissioned to create a hand painted “Heirloom Portrait”. The internet and PC’s make it difficult to appreciate the brush strokes and the painterly effect, but Gabrielle was overwhelmed with the finished product. The emotion and the young boy’s spirit was transformed from the photo and elevated to a piece of art, now proudly displayed in the client’s home as a center of attention. Here it is now, the final results!
