Father, partner, friend

This piece was tenderly painted for my father to remember his best friend who passed away suddenly in 2021. I'd known him all my life and had a great appreciation for him as a father (his children are my friends), a partner (he was with my mother for many years -- long story!), and as an accomplished and exceptional painter.

Custom portraits make such unique and meaningful gifts. I chose a university graduation photo, circa 1953 or so, and settled on a monochrome palette. My dad became quite emotional when I gave him the painting saying only "this is how he looked when I met him". My mother and his children were all equally moved by this portrait.

    Good photography is needed to commission a painting, particularly if looking for a strong likeness with a subject. Sometimes it's best if you can provide a few different options to choose from, as there may be one that suits being painted better than others.
