I perform a live painting session on site during your celebration! Whether it’s a wedding, surprise party, family reunion or bar/bat-mitzvah the painting comes to life as the party unfolds. You and your guests create memories as I capture it all on my canvas. Not only will the finished artwork be a wonderful keepsake for you to cherish for years to come but your guests will entertain themselves watching me paint.

Live Event Painting is new and trending for celebrations but has actually been around for centuries! During the end of the 18th century European artists began painting “en plein air” or “outdoors”. They did this in order to capture accurate colors hues and people in their natural environments.

Non Refundable $250 Deposit – Please note that all Live Event Painting Performance reservations require a $250 non-refundable deposit.

Travel Expenses – Local Live Painting Performances take place within the United States and are subject to the IRS gas mileage allowance @.57/mile Round Trip. Additional Hotel/Airfare travel fees apply to events taking place 75 miles outside of the midwest.  These fees would be discussed during the initial phone/email consultation.

If less than 4 weeks’ notice of cancellation is given, a 50% refund will be given less the deposit. Cancellations made less than 3 weeks prior to the scheduled event, will be charged in full.

Framing – Professional custom framing is available and recommended for original artwork. In order to keep the museum quality linen the artwork is painted on from incurring damage along the edges over time, a strong solid wood frame is the best system to house the artwork in.  In addition, a framed painting finishes the piece in a beautiful personal style that will enhance your home decor.  See samples of solid, hardwood frames offered below along with their pricing. All framing is done in house by hand.

Just choose a frame from the beautiful samples below and save yourself a lot of time and stress. I use only top quality, solid wood frames (not Polystyrene or Ramin which are manmade materials) with excellent quality hardware which I put on for you myself. Your original artwork will be ready to hang when you receive it. Framing prices for your artwork ranges from $195 to $450 depending on the size and style you choose. Prices below are for 16×20″ and 18×24″ paintings respectively. Pricing available for larger commissioned artworks.
