Signed, sealed, delivered.
Kylie's photoshoot was done over a year ago, she grew a lot since I last saw her.
Seeing the faces of the family when I deliver a painting is so much fun. I would like my art and my life to brighten the corner of a small place in this world each day. I love painting children, they inspire me with their sweet spirits & purity of heart. May we all become like children with a heart that is pure and full of love to share with others around us.

When someone request a custom piece of artwork, they usually already have an idea in their mind. The artist job is to bring that vision into reality.
For this painting, the art patron, Bonnie, wanted an eagle soaring. I had her send me a picture of the wall she was needing the the artwork to hang on.
The first part of the process was for me to send Bonnie some conceptual designs for her to get an idea of what was in my head.
Conceptual designs of painting:
We had to determine the exact size the painting needed to be. Painters tape was placed in the area, then measurements were taken.
It was decided to go with the center image. She requested some "semi-abstract" (I think that's pretty funny). The eagle was more realistic while the background had texture, gold leaf and some abstract components.
A large wooden panel as constructed for the artwork.
Images of the process:

Modern day example (above) of a charcoal portrait drawing. The quality of this medium is excellent. It should always be framed under glass to protect the artwork. Hang the finished work away from direct sunlight to protect it from UV rays.
The History of Charcoal drawings:
Charcoal was often a key component of cave painting with examples dating back to at least 28,000 years ago.
One of the oldest painting is a picture of a zebra found at the Apollo cave in Namibia.
In the renaissance Charcoal was widely used but few works of art survived due to charcoal particles flaking off the canvas. At the end of the 15th century a process of submerging the drawings in a gum bath was implemented to prevent the charcoal from flaking away. charcoal paintings date as far back as ca.23,000 BC.

Portraits provide a permanent visual reminder of the ties between the generations of your family, expressing the emotional connection between you, your ancestors and your descendants. Long after photographs have faded, portraits remain.
