Portraits are one of my favorite types of commission. I love getting to know my subjects and learn about their lives and interests. Often people have a very personal reason for getting a portrait made. While I'm painting I develop a sense of personal connection with every brushstroke. Painting the details of someone's face is a very intimate experience. I simply fall in love with the people and animals I paint.
I'd love to talk with you about commissioning a portrait. My usual process is to meet with you for about an hour to learn a little bit about you. I'll also take some pictures of you. If you have photographs you particularly like you can bring them.
If you live outside the Denver Metro area we can connect over skype and work by phone and email.
Here are some examples of portraits and the process I work through.
I work in acrylic on canvas with a two inch edge.
Pricing varies depending on size and number of subjects.

Hatfield Grandkids - Tiernan Hatfield, Caiden Hatfiield and Maddie Kittelstad
It was such a pleasure to be commissioned to paint portraits of the three Hatfield Grandchildren.
This is a sweet golden white retriever doggie who loves to smile.
These are three steps to the final painting.
This portrait focused on the accessories that help define this snappy dresser.
He suffered the loss of three close relatives within just a few months several years ago.
He got this portrait created at a point where he is enjoying life again and happily expressing himself through his activities and accoutrement.
