Here's how it works ~
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 begin working on it but will leave the painting 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 and I’ll be
happy to answer any questions from your guests.

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. A non-refundable deposit of one half the total price is required before work begins. Final payment is
due upon completion of the artwork and only if you're satisfied. 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 give you a quality work of art painted with quality materials.

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 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 prompt---arrived
early before the reception to set up her materials and
prepare. She 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, and 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

Thank you so much, Eleanor, for this beautiful portrait that you painted for
our daughter Caitlin and her husband Darren at their wedding reception.
What talent you have!!! This will be such a treasure for them for many
years to come. Love it!
