|Here's how it works ~
I try very hard to listen and give you exactly what you're looking for. After all, it is your special day and you need to be happy with the final result. In the end, my goal is to
provide you with a quality work of art painted with quality materials. If you live in Wilmington or the surrounding area, I'll meet with you at the reception venue, take preliminary
photos and determine where you'd like me to set up at the reception. After this meeting and before the actual wedding day, I'll begin preparing the canvas with an initial layout
of the painting. I'll start working on the painting but will leave it uncompleted until the time of the reception. On the wedding day, I'll set up my place at your reception. If
someone hasn't experienced an artist at work, guests will be amazed as they watch the painting develop. I'd like your guests to feel free to come up to me, look at the
painting and ask questions. After the reception, I'll take the painting home and continue putting in final details. It will take approximately three more weeks to complete the
painting and allow drying time.
The painting is created in oils with a minimum canvas size of 16” x 20.” Before making a decision on size, please think about where you'll hang the painting in your home. For
instance, if you want to hang it over a fireplace mantle, you might want to commission a larger piece. Full payment is required before work begins and is non-refundable.
We'll keep in touch and I will inform you of the progress of the painting.
I can also create a wedding portrait from your old photos. What a great gift idea to have a custom painting done of your wedding day, even if it took place years ago.
Just provide me with the photo you'd like to capture in a painting and pick a size.
Just a note: The oil painting will require adequate drying time before being picked up locally or shipped to your location. Shipping costs are additional and extra care will be
taken to assure your painting will arrive safely. If you live in the Wilmington, NC area, my prices are for the artwork, meeting with you and the photo shoot. For out of town
commissions, I would require some additional cost for travel and accommodations.
If you're interested in this exciting, different approach to your wedding day, please give me a call at 910-795-7425. You can also send an email to eleanor@davinstudios.
com. I'll be happy to discuss this unique approach to your wedding day and prepare a quote for you.

|Eleanor was absolutely incredible on my son's wedding day! She was more than
painted the first dance of the bride and groom while it was unfolding, and guests found
it most enchanting to watch this live portrait being painted! She was such a hit!
After she finished the painting, she delivered it to us. It was stunning. Absolutely
GORGEOUS. It perfectly captured what we wanted on the wedding day. As the mother
of the groom, I cannot tell you how special it is to have this precious portrait of my
son's first dance with his bride! I would suggest Davin Studios to anyone looking for
fine art or event portraits!
