Meet The Turners!

Another perfect family that I had the pleasure of painting. Mike ~ My friend and pretty much brother who lives in the apartment downstairs, asked me to paint his brothers family for their christmas gift.

There is always a challenge when the portraits are gifts, because we try to collect high detail images to paint without being obvious. Mike provided me with a black and white photo he got from facebook. He tried to get a higher resolution of the image from his sister in law for me to use but he didn’t want to give away the surprise. He made excuses like, “We are doing this photo- wall…” But it didn’t pan out so we ended up using the low-res image below. I improvised on the colour. I still think it was enough to let their beautiful faces shine through. How adorable are the little girls Kennedy and Larrisa?

This is what he had to say…

Who is the portrait of?
My brother’s family. Lee, Christy, Kennedy, and Larrisa.

Why did you choose to get this portrait made?
Christmas gift. They didn’t have a family portrait before this one.

Is there anything else you would like to share about the people in the painting?No

How did you hear about Art of Marina?
She lives in the apartment upstairs.

Are you happy with the way the painting turned out?
Yes, very pleased, and so are they.

Thanks Mike ~ For choosing me to paint your brothers family. They are pretty darn perfect! xo
