Artist George V. Edwards is a versatile artist. He does a variety of art mediums, mainly concerned with the depiction of the human face and its features and expressions, whether it be caricatures, paintings, drawings, or photography. He does serious portraits in oil, pastel, and charcoal. Other services are framing pictures and digital art. Caricatures and portraits of people can be created from photographs supplied by the customer or taken by the artist if the subject is available. Samples of his work can be seen on his Thumbtack profile page.
Caricature of live subjects at parties, conventions, etc., are $60 an hour, with a two hour minimum (there may be a travel charge the location is not local to my area). Of course that $120 could be only one hour if you want, many places charge more than that for one hour, but so far everyone has requested the two hours. Events include weddings, corporate picnics, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, birthdays, proms, receptions, graduations, fairs, just about any reason you can think of for getting a bunch of people together and having entertainment. Many jobs through Thumbtack are of this nature. Caricature samples on theThumbtack profile page are visible as are reviews by previous clients.
Photography includes portrait, landscape, and architectural. Samples of photography are on Thumbtack on the profile page, they can be seen by scrolling down the page near the bottom.
Portrait painting includes Oil Paintings, a 16x20 canvas starts at $350, more than one person or a larger size would be extra. Pastels are in color, they start at $185, a little smaller image, so that it has room to be matted and fit into a 16x20 frame. Charcoals are black and white drawings, starting at $120, the same size as Pastels. Charcoals and Pastels are done on art paper but should be framed under glass for the best display and protection. I include with the Pastel and Charcoals a plastic covering and backing board for protection untill you get you get it framed. I can also provide framing services if you desire, a 16x20 metal frame, is $60 additional, includes glass, matting, backing, etc., ready to hang. Wood frames start at $80. Portrait painting samples are on his Thumbtack profile page, seen by scrolling down to the middle of the picture samples.
