ORIGINAL SOFT PASTEL - CUSTOM PORTRAIT
Mary uses soft pastels and a mixture of drawing and painting techniques to create works that offer the viewer a feeling of tenderness and sentimentality.
Original art makes a wonderful gift!
• Medium: soft pastel
• Not framed
• Not matted
• Size: 8" x 8"
The painting will arrive unframed, with a cardboard support and wrapped in glassine paper to keep it safe while in transit. I highly recommended having it framed professionally. I'm happy to advise you on framing options, just let me know if you have any questions!
A NOTE ABOUT PASTEL
Unlike most types of painting, pastel is a dry medium. It is pure powdered pigment in the form of a stick, allowing it to have a close association with drawing.
A NOTE ABOUT FRAMING
Pastel paintings need to be framed behind glass and handled with care to prevent damages. Professional framing is best, ideally with museum quality glass.
"Mary is easy to work with - she makes it fun and is very focused on the timeliness!" ~Jill C
"From the submission of photographs to the determination of what colors are to be featured in the finished piece, Mary is a true pro in this regard. She is intuitive, kind, and wholly awesome throughout the process and made me feel extremely comfortable and at ease. I would do this entire process again in a heartbeat and without question." -Jen
