Our custom portraits are meticulously hand painted by Carol Laskin using acrylics on stretched canvas and feature your themes and ideas expressed in limitless styles and colors. We will gladly work with you from composing a preliminary sketch based on just ideas or turn your favorite photograph into a gorgeous piece of wall art. Many customers will choose to send us a photograph or drawing of their concept and then call our shop at 575.737.8521 or send us a contact message to discuss special requests such as colors, stylistic choices, placement, adding or subtracting elements, and even combining multiple photos into one final painting.
Most of our portraits are painted on 16in (width) x 20inch (height) x 3/4in (thick) canvases which can be easily framed or simply hung on any wall using a basic hanger, however we gladly accept custom requests for canvases in almost any size and prices may vary according to unique sizing requests. Color choices and styles can range from true colors to match your photos or venture off into artistic styles such as impressionism, comical, bright and exaggerated, monochrome, or just downright adventuresome. As long as we are painting, we are doing what we love and no request goes to far. After finalizing your requests, we will put brush to canvas to produce your custom landscape painting.
Once completed, we will send you a photograph of your painting to give you the opportunity to make any last minute changes or touches. Each painting is a unique one of a kind piece of art that embodies artistic creativity, so don't hold back. All work is always original and hand signed before delivery. Please do keep in mind, our turn around time on custom paintings can range from 2-6 weeks depending on complexity and order load, so allowing us a bit of extra time when ordering gifts for events and holidays is always greatly appreciated. Please don’t hesitate to contact us or call any time with questions and special requests. Thanks.. Nici and RJ
