Portraits with a Twist
I would like to introduce a new and exciting service that I like to call "Portraits with a Twist".... Sometimes an ordinary portrait just doesn't cut it for some of us. This is not to say that a hand painted portrait isn't a beautiful work of art. Sometimes we need something special that matches our personality and home decor. Today's modern technology makes it possible to do just about anything. Using special software I am able to take a painted portrait that I did for a client, and transform it into something completely different and exciting. The transformed photo of the portrait, can then be printed on either canvas or watercolor paper making it look like just like a genuine painting. These prints are created using a special process called "Giclee Printing" and the quality is exceptional! The Giclee print will have all the tones & hues of the chosen rendered photo . Another advantage to this style of printing is longevity. If kept out of direct sunlight, these prints are guaranteed to last a lifetime. Some Giclee printers are quite large allowing the artist to make large prints, which is great for the full look of the recreated version. They can then be "wrapped" around a frame and are ready to hang on your wall!
Here is how the process works:
First I begin with a photo as shown below and then create a hand painted portrait using Genesis Paints. I will then learn more about what your likes and dislikes are and how I can help create a work of art that will fit perfectly within the decor of your home.
Once I gather enough information, I then create a number of "twisted" versions of the original painting.
I can do something ordinary and subdued or something extreme and surreal. You are only limited by your own imagination!
You will then pick the design you like best and the size of the print you prefer. Along with the rendered version, you will also receive the original hand painted portrait. Think about what a wonderful conversation piece this will make!

The possibilities are endless!
Here are some more examples. Kind of reminds you of Andy Warhol's work doesn't it?
Below are two examples of adding backgrounds:
