Introduction: Welcome to my gallery of custom oil paintings! I collaborate with people to commemorate special memories and loved ones by creating high quality works of fine art inspired by their favorite images. Provide me a picture (portrait, pet, landmark event, celebrity, movie scene, boudoir), and I’ll apply my unique style and oil paint it on canvas as a meaningful keepsake that will be treasured for generations to come. My work explores the interplay of shadows to create form. By nature, I love to simplify complex information, and that is reflected in my paintings. By limiting the number of achromatic tones used (typically between 4 to 7 shades of grey plus white and black), I try to summarize an image in a concise way. This makes my paintings look highly abstract up close but realistic at a viewing distance. While I primarily paint in black and white, I will add limited color If the subject matter or clients calls for it. I hope you enjoy perusing my gallery of images to get a feel for my work, review my Standard Pricing Summary (found in the Featured Projects picture gallery), and reach out to me with an inquiry. Please note that canvas and print reproductions of my popular paintings are available on my professional website in a variety of sizes.

Deane painted a 3 piece series of my family and I LOVE IT! He was amazing to work with, taking time to understand what I was looking for and offering great suggestions on how to make it even better. The family photos I provided, some solo and some group shots, all had different backgrounds ... because it’s impossible for everyone to look their best in the same photo lol! Deane was able to take the best picture of everyone and paint a consistent background to create the illusion of one picture pulled apart. We worked through different crop options as well as canvas sizes. He even gave me cutouts of each canvas size so I could tape them on the wall to visualize them in the room. The process of coming up with the perfect piece was fun and exciting and the end product is just beautiful! The traditional family portraits in Deane’s unique style are exactly what my home needed.

We had the most amazing experience with Deane. I wanted portraits of my daughters done in his specialized black and white style that I had seen other friends purchase. He really helped me picked the best photographs to use and was very attentive to every single detail. The paintings are stunning. he was very receptive to my feedback and worked with me without any artistic "airs". Amazing service and quality. We will definitely be doing this again.

My partner and I sought out Deane to fulfill an anniversary wish for a custom portrait. We discussed over telephone a couple of times. Each time Deane was the ultimate professional and he was very accommodating. Once we received the painting we were so pleased to see the final product. He truly captured us and our ‘real looks’ so well! We love the final painting and it has a special place in our home!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Please review my Standard Pricing Summary in the "Featured Projects" section of my profile before reaching out to help determine if I may be the right portraiture artist for you. My paintings are priced by canvas size, not subject matter. After we come to a conceptual agreement on the project, which I do for free and with no obligation, I require a 50%, non-refundable deposit to begin painting with the balance due at the time of delivery. Additional fees for taxes, shipping, rushed orders, etc. may be included in the final project quote.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Patrons begin the process by emailing the image(s) they would like for me to stylize and paint. I encourage clients to submit more than one image, as some photos make for better paintings. In general, the better the quality of the photograph(s) (e.g., focused, well-lit, high definition, etc.), the better the final painting. I will “crop” the photograph as necessary to work with various canvas dimensions (along with possibly proposing some other “edits” to improve the overall composition of the painting). We exchange feedback to clarify the project until we have an agreement on the final image and canvas size, at which time a final price can be presented. As I use oil paints, sufficient drying time is necessary before may paintings can be varnished and shipped. I usually advise people that it will take between 6-8 weeks to ship paintings after I begin, and I always provide an estimated shipping date as part of the contracting process.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am primarily a self-taught artist. When I was very young, I took great interest in the oil paintings of my Grand Aunt, who began a rather prolific artistic career later in her life. She acted as an early mentor, talking to me about her process and techniques as she painted. Apart from drawing every day and a few courses in high school (and serious consideration of pursuing a college degree in the visual arts), I put my art on the side-burner while I pursued a different professional career path. Presently semi-retired from that work, I re-dedicated myself to my early love of painting (just like my Grand Aunt did). I am humbled that my art has been well-received early in this later-life endeavor, and I routinely appear at premier, juried art festivals and shows.
