“That is STUNNING”, the first words out of my mouth as we unwrapped Shiloh’s portrait from Genuine European Portraits. I just stood there, mouth agape in amazement of the beauty of it!
As soon as I saw Shiloh’s print it brought to mind a portrait of my Great Grandmother in her youth. It is a drawn, treasured heirloom that still graces the wall of my Grandparents home today.
This is the photo that I sent to Genuine European Portraits of my 7 year old.
The artists are able to take a simple photo and transform it into a treasured heirloom.
There is something unique about a hand drawn portrait of a loved one versus the photos of today; A softer touch, a capturing of a person that only an artist can detect and draw.
It is a nice clean sketch that jumps off the page at its realistic qualities, almost as if looking through a window rather than at a portrait.
Our only daughter among 5 brothers, Shiloh was the perfect choice for our review portrait. Daddy’s little girl, a beautiful gift for her Father this Father’s Day.
The artist captures each detail so wonderfully from eye lashes to softening her hair!
Signed by the artist and you can look them up on the website to learn more about their art and career. Each piece comes with a bio of the artist as well. Each is a gifted artist that takes the time and diligence to create your heirloom portrait.
The great change with new technology is the model doesn’t have to sit for hours on end while the portrait is drawn? Can you imagine your little ones being able to sit still?? Not mine! The artist can work from a couple photographs and create a portrait that looks as if your child did indeed sit for hours on end!
This is a perfect gift not only for Father’s Day as that approaches, but for
*Anniversary: have your favorite wedding photo captured in drawing, or a wedding anniversary
*Grandparents: honor them with a photo of their young family as a memory, or a recent one of your family.
* Pet owner; what about your daughter’s favorite horse, or son’s long loved dog
*Graduation; drawing of the student as a child or in cap in gown
*Loved one passing: keep their memory alive with a beautifully captured heirloom
*Birth; forever hold that precious infant in sight
The list of ideas is endless! The quality is superb and breath taking!
I can visualize a wall in my home lined with a portrait of each of my children, a moment captured in time to pass on to the future generations.
