A Picture or a Painting?

There are certain things I’ve resisted doing, like learning how to change the oil in my car, upgrading my iBook…

And photographic paintings.

Just what is a Photographic Painting? I’m so glad you asked! A photographic painting is a photograph, expertly manipulated with brush strokes to create a painterly effect. I skirted around the edges of photographic painting for a year now; should I or shouldn’t I? I’ve worried that adding a painterly affect to Frank’s photographs would diminish the honesty and integrity of the actual photograph.

I shouldn’t have worried.

The response has been overwhelming; our clients LOVE it! The images are each hand-worked, a square inch at a time, to create a custom, one-of-a-kind Photographic Painting. Some are simple with just a touch of a painterly effect; some are over-the-top with brushstrokes and texture. This incredible finish can be printed on photographic or watercolor paper, or a wrapped canvas.


So, what do YOU think?
