I want to get the best reflection of your event, so I set up my easel, light, and paints, conveniently to your floor-plan, a couple of hours before your event starts.
Because my process starts early with the background elements, I focus on you and your guests once you arrive and capture the desired moments and people "in action" during the event. And this is while your guests enjoy watching the whole process!
(See video clip of painting process here) I paint for 5 hours at the event. Because of that amount of painting time, I finish some paintings then and there. But when there are more elements to capture, with larger sizes for instance, I like to take a little more time with the painting details, and then I'll complete the painting during the following 3 weeks.
I send proofs by email. When you are happy with it, I consider the painting finished. After I get your approval, I sign and deliver the work in a professional wood frame, because I want you to be able to hang it right away.
These one of a kind oil paintings are priced according to size. Every painting is delivered in an attractive, gold-toned frame, because finished artwork deserves the best first impression. I choose frames that add 4 to 5 inches per side to the canvas sizes.

Yes! I travel often and love painting at destination weddings! Airfare and lodging are arranged separately at time of event-painting booking for international or cross-country travel to events.
You can see some of my recent, happy painting clients on this Wedding Painting Gallery Page. And please see my client reviews on TheKnot.com and WeddingWire.com, as well as in various other publications and online. I know you will be thrilled with your own Live Event Painting, and I offer a 5% discount for clients who agree to share reviews and images on social media. Book your date today!
I happily create after event paintings too, because clients often want to commemorate special people in prior times. If you have several good photos, but missed the opportunity to have a special day painted from life, I can recreate that "Live Event" feeling for you with my signature quick, loose painterly style.
If I'm not available on your particular date, consider an after-event painting instead!
