8x10 Custom NICU Baby Painting - $100 will be donated from each sale
CP-NICU-810Regular price $165.00 CAD
A while back, one of my past watercolor workshop students saw one of my portrait paintings through Instagram and commented on it. We started chatting and I found out she had given birth to a premature baby, and he had been staying at the neonatal unit for over 100 days. So I decided to draw her a portrait of her and her newborn as a gift to commemorate this special time. Next thing I knew, word spread and I have done a few of these portraits featuring NICU babies and their parents since then. These are so near and dear to my heart, that it became a passion project and I would just ask for donations be made to the BC Women's Hospital in exchange for the portraits.
Without the hospital settings and all the machines in the background that usually show up in the photos, these portraits are able to highlight the special bond during the early days of the parent and newborn, and offer a moment of calmness during this special but often stressful time.
Giving Back: I love doing these portraits and have decided to make them a permanent part of my creative practice. $100 of each sale will be donated to the BC Women's Hospital.
How It Works: This painting will be based on an existing photograph. You submit a photo (up to 3 people for NICU baby painting) and I make magic happen for you, capturing the spirit of the relationship between you and your baby perfectly. Each unique and timeless 8x10 portrait is lovingly painted using a combination of digital drawing, watercolor and pencil. The painting is printed on beautiful archival 140lb cold press watercolor paper that will last for generations. All portrait paintings will be painted in the same style as the samples that you see on this page. Please see below on how to pick the perfect photo.
Ordering Instructions: After purchasing, please send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, quoting your order number and full name used to purchase. Your order will not be in the painting queue until I have received your photos and have confirmed that I can work with those photos.
