Custom Original Art on Paper 10"x10" or 8"x10" Commission from YOUR Photo
A great gift! A custom mixed media and oil painting, on archival oil paper, from YOUR PHOTO 8"x10" or 10"x10." I can do pretty much any subject. My pricing is for a contemporary framed and matted piece (as shown). I have black, white, birch and dark brown frame options available. Approximate depth of the black frame is 1 1/2." Dark brown and birch are both 1." The white square frame is an extra deep 2 1/4." The actual art size will be a couple of inches smaller (which varies depending on the format of the piece) to allow for the mat and frame. All pricing is according to final framed size. For example, actual art size is 4.75" x 4.75" framed to approximately 10"x10" for $150.
If you would like to move forward, purchase your custom painting and send me your photo along with a title for your custom painting to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me above. It can take a few weeks to complete your custom art. I will keep you informed throughout the process and let you know as soon as it's done. I will send you a message with a picture of the final painting for your approval prior to shipping. If for some reason I can't make it work, you will receive a full refund.
Gift purchases are wrapped in brown kraft paper and include a cloth bow. Your new art will be mindfully made and packaged using ecofriendly or recycled materials in our ongoing efforts to support sustainability.

Thank you for your interest in my art!
About the Artist:
Shirley Bales is a multi-generational painter. Shirley formally studied fine art under an accomplished forensic portrait artist and other notable illustrators in the 1990's. Shirley also attended workshops by acclaimed plein air painters, and exclusively painted outside for over 10 years to develop her acute color sensibility. Shirley attributes most of her technical knowledge to the Cennini Forum, comprised of forerunners of the Classical Realism Movement. Shirley has participated in multiple group and solo shows winning multiple awards and accolades over the years. Her work resides in hundreds of private collections worldwide.
"Shirley's work is accessible, peaceful and on target. It is without pretense, boldly interpretive and technically perfect. Every home has a place on its wall for a Shirley Bales!"
