Custom Order: Hand Painted Photo Collage of Three Children on the Beach

Recently, after showing my hand painted collage art, I've been getting requests for customized hand painted photo collages on canvas. The Portrait of three children on the Beach is one of my first custom made collage pieces.

The photo was sent to me via e-mail.
For my process I take a copy of the original photograph ~ hand paint the figures ~
cut them out ~ collage them onto a hand painted canvas board ~ layer more paint
to give the collage an impressionistic feel ~ coat the entire surface with a gloss varnish
to seal and protect the art ~ sign the front ~ and the collage is ready to hang.

16" x 20" art collage
Three Children on the Beach
Finished and ready to be carefully packaged and shipped.
