I’m so excited to announce this new portrait project on the 11th anniversary of my Mom Loving Portrait Project!

Last time I did a project like this it focused on moms and babies. This time it is open to a wide interpretation of parental love – dads, grandparents, pets… Surprise me.

Did you come here to learn about my regular portraits? Here is that information.


The painting will be available to you for $200 (that’s a 50%-70% discount).

Portrait Of Love – Details

  • Size: 8×10 – 11×14 inches, gestural color sketches in oil or acrylic on canvas or panel, unframed
  • Price: $200
  • You’ll get first dibs, before the painting becomes available to the public at a higher price
  • Paintings will be displayed on a Portrait of Love web page on this site, and will be incorporated into a book if I reach my goal number of portraits
  • I won’t post your photo unless you want me to

I may not be able to paint from all the photos I receive, but I will respond and let you know I received it. If you don’t see a response within a day, please check your spam/promotions folder.

What makes a photo great for painting?
Candid photos (where no one is looking at the camera), and photos with natural light are more likely to be painted.
