It is of utmost importance that you are satisfied with your commissioned painting. I also strive to assure the entire experience is one that you would love to repeat and/or recommend to someone else.
During my past 18 years of painting, I have completed over 40 commissions. All of them have been positive experiences except one; this happened to have been very early in my young career and one of those important teaching experiences. References can be provided per your request.
Here are a few testimonials I would like to share with you:
An artist like Carol McIntyre wants more that just a snapshot or two to work with, she wants to know the subject as well as she can to enable her to capture its spirit, and that means an extensive interview. Instead of surprising my wife, I knew I had to include her in the process and we began the process together.
The entire painting process was documented step-by-step on her web site so friends and family could follow along. It was as if you were in the studio with her, a very exciting experience!
When we went to Carol’s studio for the final approval, Suzie and I were overwhelmed at what she accomplished! I don’t know how she does it, but she truly captured Curley’s spirit, and anybody that views his portrait will see more than just a black horse. She created such a beautiful tribute that will help us remember a dear friend long after he is gone. — Rick & Suzie Tiller
We have cried – Carol brought PeeWee back to life, and along with her, so many special memories. She looks just like we remember her – we are amazed Carol captured her intensity in the eyes and body. We could not be happier! — Kirsten & Joe Stasney
It was amazing to stand together at Thanksgiving & hang our Memory Portrait in our parent’s home. The scene revived cherished memories for each of us. We laughed & cried as we shared our thoughts and feelings about the family cabin. — Joan Cook
Through her artistic skill at reaching for those important details that make a painting personal & meaningful, Carol has created something unique & special for us to enjoy in our home. The handportrait she did of Frank playing his cornet captures an image of the music that is an integral part of our lives. It is something we will always treasure, and enjoy sharing with our friends. — Debra & Frank Hilligas
