Whimsical Portraits..A portrait concept outside the box"

   I have thought for years what fun it would be to have a portrait done as a personal fantasy......sometimes when I speak with clients...they sort of feel vain or self indlugent in having a formal  oil portrait done...but this idea sometimes hits home..they can put themselves in a historical instant relative from colonial days..that  also happens to look just like them...or  a total fantasy, along with a pet I created in the " Rob as Zeus" combining personal objects in an adapted  Ingres painting...
Anyway, certainly a conversation piece.... especially for someone who seems to have everything!
Here are some past custom whimsical portraits along with a recent postcard.

Author Keith Jones as the Revolutionary War Officer

Dr. Richard Paulding as  the "Americana Primitive Style Circa 1860" Country Doctor
