Custom and personalized artwork can be a great way to create a keepsake of a special memory for yourself or for a gift. If you are thinking of having custom artwork created for you or a loved one, here are some things to think about.
What has special meaning to you or the person to whom you are giving the gift? Some ideas for custom artwork are:
- a cherished pet
- a home or church
- a vacation spot
- a first date location
- a wedding bouquet
- a special portrait, such as an engagement picture or a grandchild
- a landscape that has meaning to you
- a favorite verse or quote surrounded by a border
Once you have chosen the subject for your custom artwork, be sure to provide a clear and accurate photograph. Your painting will be based off of the photo you provide, so the picture you submit is important. Make note of any important details you want included or omitted from the painting.
Where you plan to display your painting will help you decide what size of painting to order. If your artwork will be on a shelf, then a smaller 5×7 size might work well. In a wall grouping an 8×10 or 8×8 sized print will fit in nicely. You may want to consider an 11×14 sized painting if it will be hung alone or with fewer things.
If you have other family members that would like a copy of your custom artwork, I can have high quality prints made for you at a reasonable cost. Be sure to ask me about this if you are interested in sharing copies with friends and family.
I love painting memories for others. I always feel honored when someone chooses me to put the things they love into a piece of art. I take seriously the responsibility of capturing your memories with as much accuracy and love as possible. I pray each piece I paint will be something that brings a smile to the heart of the one who it was made for.
