Painting Your Special day on canvas as it happens!
Welcome to Live Event Painting
Truly, there is no better way to preserve one of the most memorable days of your lifetime than to have a one of a kind painting as it happens presented to you on your wedding day.
I will go over the details you want painted on canvas a few weeks before the event. The day of the event I set up 2-3 hours before to arrange the composition & paint the backgrounds. As the guests arrive they are painted in and the party begins. The guests of honor - bride & Groom are painted in. For weddings the most popular are exchange of vows [ the ceremony] or the first dance [ the reception].
Your guests will be entertained and amazed as they see the painting being completed.
Live Event Artist of Arizona presents your beautiful masterpiece canvas in a custom frame at the end of the reception! Imagine an heirloom-quality original painting on canvas that captures the essence of your wedding or reception.
We offer many size canvas 16" x 20" is our standard, 18" x 24", 24" x 36" and the mural size 36" x 48" all paintings can also be studio finished for more detail when requested beforehand.
Having a painting of your special day as a keepsake to remember is priceless!
