This commissioned work was a true amalgamation of various images combined to create a full custom portrait painting. I used a photo of Mike for his body position on the bike that was extremely low resolution. His wife Chrystal provided close to one hundred photos so I could change his clothes to his favorite outfit, put the right helmet on him, get his bike accurate and put him in different scenery! It was quite a challenge but we did it!
This was a surprise for her husband as a celebration of his life and survival of a very traumatic heart attack. Mike is back to normal, riding trails, fully active and loving life!
