What started out as an idea for a simple portrait as a 10 year anniversary gift, turned into so much more. What an amazing experience. With little to no knowledge about paintings and portraits, I blindly picked an artist that I found online. That artist was Theresa Johnson. I reached out to Theresa with my idea, and after talking to her I got the impression that she was the real deal and that I should leave everything up to her. What a great decision that was!! I supplied Theresa with some photos and thats where it began. The result
.a caricature of my amazing friends. And it looks JUST like them. But theres more. My friends and I are rivals. Green Bay Packers vs Detroit Lions rivals. They bleed the Green Bay green. And it makes me puke. So, as a creative twist, she created the caricature of them
in Detroit Lions jersey! The recipients loved the portrait (not necessarily the jerseys though). Theresas skills, creativity and professionalism has been the major reasons why Ive recommended her to anyone that I know that want portraits. But something that stands out above all of those things is that she kept and open line of communication throughout the entire process, which made me trust in her and her work more and more. And to top it off, shes really damn nice. I loved the experience and look forward to working with her sometime in the future.
