My First LIVE Painting Event!

I'm so excited to share the details of my first LIVE painting event!

I've partnered with Sara O'Shea of So Chic Boutique (316 S. Main St. in Morton, IL 61550), an amazingly adorable store (and store owner) in Morton, IL where I'll be painting live Family Portraits for Mother's Day.

Here's how the event will work. I'll be set up in Sara's "conference room" area when you visit the store. I'll take your picture or a picture of just your kids with my iPad and use that photo for the painting while you shop. Each person in the portrait takes approximately 20 minutes to paint. Once the painting is finished you'll be able to pick it up right then and there!

There are a limited number of portraits I can paint during the event, so in an attempt to keep it fairly organized, I've set up a listing in my shop to allow you to prepay. Once the purchase is made, I'll assign you a specific time slot. 

Purchase this listing to prepay.

I'm also opening up 5 spots for pre-painted portraits that I'll bring to the live event already completed. If you wish to have your portrait finished before next Friday, send an email with your photo references to Michelle@CustomPortraitsbyMichelle.com after completing the purchase in my shop.

I can't wait to meet you in person!
