Does anyone happen to know/are personally an amateur artist who specialises in sketching/drawing what children may look like in future please?
I miscarried my twins the week of my 19th birthday and my most treasured possesion is a pencil sketch a fantastic friend did for me several years ago and it's coming up to 18 years since I lost my twins now (29th September and 6th October) so want to invest in a sketch of what they would look like as young adults (they would have been 18 in early April next year).
I'm willing to pay up to £50 (approx $75-$100) at most, but only if the picture meets my high expectations!
You can see my memorial pages and the sketch on my site.
If you want to give it a go, please email me a few examples of your previous portraits and if you meet my expectations then let me know what your price is and what you need to know to come up with the portrait and I'll do my best to answer your questions.
If you paint portraits, that's totally cool, but if I agree to you doing the portrait, can I ask that you do it on paper instead of those board things so that I can frame it please?
If you can arrange to have the approved work framed as well then I'll happily pay an extra £25 for that and postage if you want me to?
If you've got a website or small, personal e-shop or whatever, I'll happily give you an appropriate review that you can publish to show how great your artwork is... don't expect me to be anything but honest in it though!
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to contact me about what I've said in this post :-)
