About This Piece:

I am happy to offer CUSTOM OIL PORTRAITS based on photos you provide at $180.00!

I think that small portraits are so endearing because they are precious little family heirlooms that will fit any home from an apartment to a palace! They can either be framed as a table top portrait, or hung in a bigger frame on the wall.

How many big portraits end up in the attic or garage because they are too big and are too much trouble to re-frame to fit the decor? The friendly size I've chosen is affordable and friendly :)

Please familiarize yourself with my style. Here are some examples: Example 1, Example 2, Example3. Here is an animal portrait example too Pet Portrait 1(oils), pet portrait 2(watercolor) , and pet portrait 3 (oils) and a lovely dog oil portrait.I am not a photorealist artist, there are other artists who speciliaze in this technique that you can commission or perhaps you simply want photo portraits.

I have fashioned my style after my idol John Singer Sargent. Whose VISIBLE brush strokes are losely yet strategicly applied.

Please be sure to read the terms of this transaction before bidding. I hope to be a part of your family history by painting a wonderful oil portrait of your loved one.

For those who are new to my auctions, I am primarily a figurative artist. I work in watercolors, oils, and mixed media. For other size needs please contact me, Thanks!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VIEWING OUR AUCTIONS!

About the Artist:.

Erika's works are influenced by her favorite artists like John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt. She also admires the dramatic techniques of Caravaggio's chiaroscuro paintings.

Erika is primarily a figurative artist who tries to earn her livelihood through producing and selling art. Her degenerative condition limits her ability to paint too many oil paintings a year. Most of the pieces she produces lately are the popular watercolor nude figuratives she sells on Ebay.

Payment Details:. I prefer Paypal payments. I will accept Money Order and Personal checks but I will have to hold item until check clears. Purchases may be combined but payment is expected within maximum of 10 days in all cases. I reserve the right to re-list and leave negative feedback.
Shipping Details:. I use USPS for my shipping carrier. Insurance is included in shipping fee. Your purchase will always be professionally wrapped.
TERMS:.

The colors may look slightly different from the picture due to monitor settings.

This offer is for a head and shoulders portrait only.

The size is 6"x8" oil portrait on canvas board based on photo provided by client. Frame is not included.

You may send me a scanned image with the head from top to chin being at least 350x350 pixels. Or you can send me photo(s) and I will work from the original.

I have 20 years of experience and passion invested into figurative and portrait art. I realize that offering this through Ebay means I have to put extra effort into dealing with client. I will take digital photos of each step and will email client.

It will be more important to express changes in steps 2, 3, and 4. Once the piece is approved by client, I will let it dry for about a week and ship the oil portrait :) Again, I will take digital photos of painting to show you how the painting looks. I will not take the painting back for changes. Selling art on Ebay is my only income which means I need to work on pieces to sell.

If an unfortunate situation arises and the client is absolutely not happy with the portrait, painting will be sent back to me and I will gladly refund 50% of the fee. I can honestly tell you that I haven't disappointed a client yet :)

THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING THROUGH THIS! I HOPE I CAN BE OF SERVICE TO YOU. I LOVE CREATING ART SO I AIM TO SHARE THE JOY OF THIS PROCESS WITH YOU! =)

Please feel free to contact me for further questions at erikasfriends2002@yahoo.com so I may answer your questions.
