What is a portrait blank you may ask. Well I came up with my own style of portrait drawing, where I pre make backgrounds, and then gesso in the shape of the head. And then at these craft fairs, or by appointment I draw in a persons face onto which ever blank they choose out of the stack. It is pretty much awesome.
What are these amazing craft/art fairs I speak of? Well the first is called The Art Blizzard and is at the Voncommon Art Gallery (127 E Main, Suite 316). It is on First Friday, December 6th, I am not a hundred percent of the time, but I am guessing 5-9, I will update when I know more. The second is the Missoula MADEfair which is on Sunday the 8th from 11am to 6pm. It is being held at the Adam’s Center on the UM campus. I will be selling art, xmas cards, and doing live portrait.
Prices for portraits range from $20-50 depending on size and number of people. I can also do house calls, but you will have to add $5 onto the cost of the portrait. If this is something you want to do, email me. firstname.lastname@example.org.
