The mural looks awesome all lined up....You should stitch them together and make one big long one too...*** it looks fabulous in one piece!!
Susan Gauthier - Over 30 days ago
Thank you Em! It was such a fun piece to do....I'm not sure if I ever did get the full piece photographed. I don't think I have the right editing software to make stitch it. :(

Well I could do that for you down the track Susan, but way busy at the moment until mid or late december. . It would be in photoshop and don't know if you use that . but it handles multiple layers and I have been doing that for years. If you send me the set of pics and the original photos I shall put them in a folder and after I finish this big job I would love to sort that for you and blend them into one and just a gift ok... Message me your email first though, so I can put you in my contacts list, otherwise anything that I don't have there will automatically go to the junk mail as phishing scam..lol...I have stumbled on a few things in there by accident. If you want me to do that for you must message email address , private on the message hire box above friends....and I shall add you and let you know so that you can send the pics ok....That is if you want....as such a shame not to have it as a full piece...

You are so kind..I will try to remember to do this soon..crazy busy too..have two commissions before Christmas, Can't complain on that though!!!
Em Gee - Over 30 days ago
Same this end...Long days on one big project!!! .and as to why I said later rather than sooner..lol But email me your address first k.. send before we both forget.

About Me:
I am mainly a watercolor portrait artist, painting people and animals on a commission basis. (Though I am now also offering murals for client's homes and offices,which I paint in acrylic.) I received a Bachelor's of Fine Arts Degree (class of '92) from Maine College of Art in Photography. I strive to capture each subject's unique qualities, that twinkle in the eye...that subtle grin. My goal is to paint a true rendering of my subjects while evoking an emotional response from the viewer.
I work in both watercolor and gouache(opaque watercolor), using a client provided 4x6 photograph (or compilation of photographs). I am also willing to do photo sittings for an additional fee.
I also still have a love of photography and occasionally do work that I find inspiring. You can visit my...
