Bob Bullock Texas History Museum

Stefani Wier, mother of the bride, commissioned this painting for Brittany and Jonathan, both UT cheerleaders. I think the entire squad was there and it was quite a sight when they did their routine to Wabash Cannonball on the dance floor. The finalĂ© was throwing Brittany high up in the air, petticoat and all. Loved it! This painting is extra special as I included Brittany’s grandparents from old photos, who were watching from above. Live event painting is 16″x20″.

Omni Hotel - Houston, Texas

Susan Golden, mother of the bride, commissioned this painting for Lynley and Alex Stern. The wedding and reception took place at the Omni Hotel in Houston. What a fabulous fetĂ© this was with no less than 6 bands throughout the evening and early morning. At 2 am the Mariachi band arrived and all the guests were treated to breakfast. Now that’s a party! Lynley was just beautiful and so sweet. Many blessings to them in their new life together! Painting is 20"x30".

Live Event Painting
Live Event Painting is a unique way to capture a special events, such as weddings, receptions and corporate events.

What is the Process?
Before a live event painting commission, I discuss with my client the 'scene' they would like painted and its composition. I then arrive at the event 2 hours early to set up and begin blocking in architectural elements. As guests begin to arrive, I start sketching in figures. I take photographs throughout the event and I will use these photos to finalize the piece in the studio.

  1. I think having something like this at my upcoming wedding would be awesome. In my opinion this is much better than a picture. A full painting is personal and means a lot more. It also looks better hanging in the living room.
