A family portrait with a difference!

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Many people are looking for interesting art for their walls to represent their families.  I myself have grand plans for a family feature wall in our next house.

I can create a work of art for you that represents your family in a unique way.  In my family tree portraits, I represent the family using a number of my signature swirly trees.

“Little Family”

In the portrait, I represent each parent in a different primary colour.  I then represent the children as a secondary colour that is a blend of the two parents’ colours, to represent that the children are a blending of the two parents.  I also use hearts to represent the love the family shares.  I can do any variation on this theme you like, including creating a portrait for blended families with stepchildren.  It is a great way to have an artwork on your wall that uniquely represents your family.  These paintings can be created as anything from small watercolours on paper to large acrylic paintings on canvas.

Another way your family can be uniquely represented on your wall is in a painting like this:

In this painting, only a couple are represented – however, smaller birds could be added to represent children.  Once again, a painting like this can be commissioned as anything from a small watercolour to a large canvas.  I have plans to create a painting like this for my own family – but I think I might make the background more like this one:

Moons of Jupiter: Redux

Friday, March 19th, 2010

I just got an email from a customer I created some commissioned artwork for.  He contacted me a couple of months ago about a set of 4 paintings I’d done, titled “Moons of Jupiter”, which I had already sold.  I suggested I could paint something similar for him.  I was quite happy with how they turned out, and today he emailed me a picture of how they look framed together on the wall:

If your favourite painting is one that is already sold, let me know and I’ll paint something similar, just for you!

How I’ve Been Keeping Busy…

Monday, January 11th, 2010

I’m lucky enough to be on holidays – so what have I been doing with my time?

I finished off a commissioned painting, and delivered it to my happy customer:

Now that one’s done, I’ve started working on another commission, this one for a friend:

This is just one panel of a triptych.  I’m looking forward to seeing the finished painting on her wall!  Also a big thank you to my wonderful husband for the new easel it’s sitting on, which I got for Christmas.

Finally, I’ve also been working on some new pendants – these ones are squares and rectangles:

I’m offering a discount to my facebook fans this week – buy a keepsake box and a pendant in your choice of design for $50.  Become a fan of KL Bailey Art on facebook for more details!
