Spitting Image: Memorial Portrait – Audra


The memorial portrait I was commissioned to do recently is done and I could not be happier with the way it came out. I am even more happier with the feedback i got from the customer.

Tom contacted me to do this memorial portrait of the beautiful Audra. I was asked to add some purple flowers to represent her favorite color. This is the first time I have incorporated color into a black and white portrait. Normally I either do them black and white or color. I am so happy that Tom asked me to do this as I really love the way it turned out.


Tom then showed Audra’s older sister and this was her reaction that literally brought a tear to my eye…


Art can be fun and it can be interesting but when it becomes sentimental it brings it to another level. I was touched to hear how happy the family is with the portrait I completed for them as I know how important it is to want to keep the memory of your loved ones alive. Memorial portraits are a wonderful way to do this and I was honored that Tom saw my portfolio and thought I was the right artist to do this for them.

I am starting a new thing here in my news blog that I am going to call Artistatus. It’s like posting a status but as an artist. It will keep you Freaky Fanatics up to date on what I am doing creatively. How often would you like to see these types of posts??


With that said.. I am working hard on a portrait I was commissioned to do of someone’s loved one that passed. I am always honored when people come to me to do pieces like this. It’s always sad to look into the eyes of someone lost but it makes me feel like my talent is going to something wonderful when it’s going to help someone cope and keep the memory alive of someone that they love and cherish. Not to mention just being honored by the fact that someone feels you are the special artist to capture their loved ones essence.

Stay Spooky and Memorable!
