Please support your local artists. I am in Ann Arbor and have twenty-two years of perfecting my skills in realistic portrait work. Here is what else you might find on the internet. Although the economy is affecting almost everyone in some negative fashion, there is one segment of the population that is hard hit and that is the American Artist. Thanks to Michaels Arts and Crafts Stores, who have truly gone against supporting local artists that paint portraits. I guess they don't care if local artists send customers to them for framing, it must not be profitable enough. How? Michaels thinks nothing of taking money from hard working, struggling artists, by selling their dwindling art supply inventory to, but now they have Portraits at Michaels Brushstrokes(registered trademark emblem)Your Treasure Memories Hand Painted Brushstrokes® Fine Art is one of the largest fine art reproduction companies in North America. We use our artists’ expertise, patented technologies, and skilled craftsmanship to bring you Brushstrokes® Portraits at Michaels®. Through a combination of master artistry and proprietary process your most treasured photograph will be transformed into an original hand painted oil-on-canvas masterpiece. How We Do It We start with your photograph and selected portrait size. We digitally enhance and print using our proprietary process. WHAT KIND OF MASTER ARTIST??? WOULD PAINT PORTRAITS ASSEMBLY STYLE ? WHAT KIND OF MASTER ARTIST WOULD BE PAID UNDER 50. FOR AN OIL PORTRAIT ON A 16X20" CANVAS??? MASTER ARTISTS??? COME ON! CUT THE CR_P! IF MICHAELS CHARGES 149.99 FOR A 16X20" TO YOU THE CUSTOMER, HOW MUCH DOES THE MASTER ARTIST MAKE???, OR 179.99 FOR A 20X24" OIL ON CANVAS. DIDN'T KNOW MASTER ARTISTS COULD WORK THAT CHEAPLY!!! THIS IS AMERICA NOW! THERE IS NO PRIDE LEFT IN ANYTHING HAND MADE BY AMERICANS THEMSELVES, THAT'S JUST TOO MUCH TO ASK. A Master Artist paints the portrait using genuine oil paints. We pay every attention to detail to ensure that your portrait displays only the highest quality and workmanship.
HERE'S WHAT AMERICAN PORTRAIT ARTISTS ARE UP AGAINST: THANKS TO AMERICAN WEBSITE OWNERS WHO PRACTICE THESE UNFAIR BUSINESS PRACTICES AND MICHAELS ARTS & CRAFTS:
Q. Who paints your portraits? A. We are a portrait service. We have a large group of artist that paint for us from around the world which we found through trial and error. HA HA HA! They are master portrait painters HA HA HA! all trained at major art institutions HA HA HA!. We always inspect the paintings up close before we ship them to our customers . These artists are some of the best in the world. BEST ARTISTS IN THE WORLD, JUST ASK S.O.P.A.??? ARE THESE THE BEST PORTRAIT ARTISTS IN THE WORLD? Each portrait is hand signed by the Artist and we apply a special UV coating to protect the portrait for life. See Framing Associate to place an order. Please allow approximately 4 weeks for delivery.
Q. Why don't you just use a local artist? ( HMM??? ) A. In the past, only the wealthy could afford a hand painted portrait. That's because a good local artist charges an arm and a leg (THESE UNSKILLED ASSEMBLY LINE ARTISTS CAN'T EVEN PAINT AN ARM OR A LEG)to get a custom (gallery quality) portrait done. By using our artist , now anyone can afford a custom hand painted portrait, and they produce the same quality as a portrait costing thousands of dollars. We have completely satisfied hundreds of customers in the past. Everyone needs a painted portrait, not just the rich.
THEY WOULD RATHER EXPLOIT THE THIRD WORLD TO TURN A PROFIT THAT'S WHY!
2. Where do your oil painting portraits come from? Our process begins here in Florence Arizona, USA. We provide "Graphics First" One of or possibly even the most important part of the painting process is to create the scene first. We do this with computer graphics. Only after you have approved the computer sketch will we send it to A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY one of our highly qualified artists WHO LIVES ON TEN DOLLARS A WEEK. Our portrait artists come from around the globe. We are creating new jobs for professional and experienced artists STEALING EVERY CHANCE HARD WORKING AMERICAN PORTRAIT ARTISTS HAVE EVER HAD, PAYING THE DUES TO LOOSE, THANKS SO MUCH! with a smaller income AMERICAN PORTRAIT ARTISTS WITH NO INCOME! HOW'S THAT!!!. This is how we are able to offer you an affordable Museum Quality oil painting.
