Commissioning a portrait
Withe every portrait I strive to create a unique a personal work
of art that captures and honors the subject in a memorable way.
Although I prefer to work from a live model, I know (especially
when painting children) that that may not always be a realistic
way to go in which case I will employ a professional photographer.
The photos will be reviewed with the client for their feedback and
together we will decide which photo to ultimately use.
I will then complete the painting in
my studio. Although many portraits are completed with photographic
reference, I encourage live sittings when possible.
Portraits fees begin at $1000. Please
contact the artist for details at email@example.com
or by phone at 215-756-2113.
Bix took the time to come to our home
to personally get to know my son, Patrick and our family dog, Cocoa.
Bix was able to captured the true friendship that exists between
Patrick and Cocoa. Bix was amazing. He was also able to place both
Patrick and Cocoa into a setting that reflects our Irish Heritage.
The Portrait hangs on a wall that is a central focal point in our
home. Our families, guests and of course, ourselves are constantly
reminded of the true friendship that Pat and Cocoa have! Thank you
A little while back, my friend Bix offered
to paint a portrait of me. I jumped at the opportunity. It being
trout season, sitting by the creek, rod in hand, seemed to be the
perfect setting. Two and a half sittings later (very relaxing I
might add) I had a portrait of me that Ill cherish forever
and is in fact my Facebook profile picture, and that I even ordered
an extra copy made.
How fortunate for us to have met Bix!
We had a picture of our children that was taken on the beach many
years ago when they were young that we always loved. Having a painting
of the photo was always a dream of ours and when we bought a home
in Florida we had the right place to have the painting!! As soon
as we saw Bix' work we knew he was the Artist to make our dream
come true! He spent an immense amount of time and energy looking
at all aspects of the beach surroundings in order to replicate the
sun, clouds, water and nuances of the shading of the sand. We are
extremely appreciative of Bix' dedication to our project and the
painting that we enjoy every single day far exceeds our expectations.
