A special note about Triple Portraits
Triple portraits are available for commission of a pet or a person.
For birthdays, Holidays, anniversaries ... a triple portrait of a child at different stages of his/her life makes a fantastic present for Mom and Dad. A triple portrait of someone’s beloved furbaby also makes a great gift!
Starting at $1500 in graphite and $5000 in oil, these drawings and paintings are larger, more involved compositions and require a minimum of 6 months to complete. Order early to get your portrait in time for your special gift giving occasion.
Each portrait is unique. It is an heirloom passed down through generations, therefore It is an emotional investment for both the patron and the artist. It is as personal to me, the artist, and it is to you, the patron. Every painting is the accumulation of an ongoing lifetime of study and exercise.
My work is available as prints and cards at Fine Art America and on a variety of products at The Art of Liz Viztes Zazzle Store. This excludes commissioned artwork. All commissioned artwork, including portraiture, is considered private and will not be made available for prints or cards.
