There is nothing like an oil painting to capture a legacy with all the grace and dignity of the human spirit. Portraits were invented to honor an individual, family or relationship and continue to inspire, intrigue and awe us with their living presence, even from generations ago. In the portraits painted by Adrian Gottlieb, he seeks to take this very aspect and infuse each painting he creates with its very essence.
The portrait promise:
A portrait client must be confident that his/her likeness and character shall be preserved accurately by the artist for the sake of posterity.
The portrait artist shall pledge the utmost respect and consideration to his client and the painting. It is the client’s privilege and the responsibility of the artist to maintain that for the life of the artwork and the person whom it represents.
Gottlieb has painted a number of well respected public, religious and business figures along with many portraits of every day people. To him, there is always joy in seeing and representing a person’s humanity to the fullest extent that it may be expressed. That is why he is one of the finest portrait artists working today. We hope that you will join us in a lasting tribute to your heritage and commission a timeless portrait for your very own.
Here’s some considerations we suggest to start planning your portrait commission.
Purpose is at the heart of painting. It conveys your statement, the reason for the portrait commission. Many careful hours are spent planning so that the work conveys a strong sense of purpose. In the beginning, you will meet with Adrian to discuss your intentions and ideas. It is an opportunity to consider the size, color scheme and theme of the painting while gaining more clarity about the final outcome.
When thinking about quality in a painting, we take our cue from museum conservators. The mark of quality in a work of art (after considering the artist who made it) is the virtue of its materials and the soundness of its craftsmanship so that it may last in good condition for many generations to come.
In some parts of the world there is a favorite saying: “Anything is possible” We invite you to free your imagination and feel confident in expressing to us any special wishes for your commission. We are proud to offer you our expertise, knowledge and experience in which to guide you in fulfilling a unique request or providing personalized servces.
