MIKE ONISKO.... 10" x 8" .... Oil on Canvas .... (c) Margery Caggiano
I'm calling this series of 8x10 portraits "oil sketches"....Trying to get the essence of a person without doing a highly finished painting. This was done from a photo sent via email, on gallery wrapped canvas. I'm currently accepting commissions for this size, unframed, from your photo. Cost is $195, for this size only. The photo can be black and white, and even somewhat out of focus. Obviously, the higher the resolution, the better. Some candids "get" a person, whether alone or in a crowd.
But teeth, however sweet the smile, don't make a good painting. Nor will I, or should I, use a professional photographers studio portrait.
If I don't think I can do a good job I'll tell you. No charge.
