ARTIST'S CHOICE Portrait Commission, Size 11"x14"
ORIGINAL PORTRAIT - Artist's Choice
More meaningful than a photo, an original portrait painting shows off a person's unique personality. It is a timeless work of art that you will proudly display.
A portrait makes an ideal gift! Grandparents love to receive original portraits of their grandchildren. Make a holiday or birthday extra special with an original work of art. Give a gift to your significant other or to yourself: a portrait of you!
This version of my portrait commission is the "Artist's Choice"
If you like a deal, you're okay with surprises, and you feel comfortable giving full creative license over to an artist, you'll love this version. It's very simple and stress-free!
All you need to provide are:
- 8-10 high quality digital photos of the intended subject. (see tips here)
After that, allow Mary to take over.
Mary will use her artistic eye to choose:
- which reference photo to use, out of the 8-10 you provide
- the composition of the portrait
- the colors of the artwork
By purchasing this listing, you agree to the guidelines laid out here.

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.
Your 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!
