Creative Custom paintings - People, Pets, Places.
In our image "A Time In Old Town," the couple was photographed dressed in costumes of the 20's. We placed them in an Old Town background, the Waterfront Cafe, and added the classic 20's car, the cat and the other people. We painted the entire image and produced the 16" x 20" image on canvas. The final steps before framing involved hand-painting with acrylics. The foreground couple and the folks in the background, and even the classic car can be changed.
Photo Restoration - Sepia Tone, Paintings, Montages
Old photos of special people, or moments in time, will significantly degrade over the years. Photo Restoration often involves restoring an old, deteriorated photo to the highest quality possible using various methods. Once restored and printed with archival inks and acid-free materials, they will last and be available for future generations. Although the traditional finish in older photos before full color was available was sepia tone, an older photo can also have color added. Some times an old photo is so deteriorated that we may suggest completely painting it. In addition, a person can be added or taken out of a photo before it is painted or restored.
