original hand-painted portraits
-- oil on canvas -- from your photograph or mine
by artist terry lefler
My concept for the "cutout" painting was to eliminate the background of the painting and to let the wall show through and become a part of the painting.
The wood or aluminum composite material is approximately 1/4" thick and is supported in back by a metal framework designed to prevent the material from warping. The depth of the metal framework causes the painting to be approximately 1/2" away from the wall thus providing interesting shadows that change with lighting conditions.
There is "picture wire" in back of the painting and the painting hangs on the wall by the usual "nail-in-the-wall" method.
This paintings, shown above, weigh between 4 and 15 pounds.
How do you order a portrait? See How to Order a Portrait.
How long does it take? You should expect to wait 8 to 10 weeks for completion of the portrait after an agreement has been reached. The artist will only accept a limited number of orders..
