The Beauty of an Oil Painting – The Likeness of a Photograph

More than a photograph…a work of art.

Masterful portraits with the look and feel of an original oil painting creating the most unique blend of photograph and painting. With our Old Masters finish, each LUXE Portrait is painted not once, but twice!  The portrait is first digitally hand painted as on oil painting before printing at the highest museum archival quality, ensuring your legacy will last for generations.  We take this process a step further by having our artist enhance the printed canvas by painting it a second time, this time with hand-painted oil accents.  This gives the portrait that rich texture and feeling of a custom oil portrait while maintaining the likeness and expression of a photograph.

The Process:

Portrait sittings are personally guided in posing and each one is uniquely lit to produce the perfect portrait from which we create your artwork. Together, we will view your images and select the one(s) you wish produce as lasting art.

LUXE Portraits are Available in Two Finishes

LUXE Classic:

The LUXE Classic finish is a hybrid marrying a photograph and a painting. These portraits will have elements that are digitally hand painted, while maintaining much of the realism of the photograph throughout the rest of the portrait.

LUXE Classic is available in all sizes.

LUXE Old Masters:

The finest of finishes, this portrait is fully rendered as a painting and painted not once, but twice. The photograph is first completely digitally hand painted and then printed on archival museum quality canvas. Once printed, your portrait is enhanced with oil paints by our artist and given a gloss painted finish transforming the portrait completely into an original masterpiece.

LUXE Old Masters is reserved for portraits 20” x 24” and larger.

Artwork begins at $1,500
