Look up "/reallygoodpaintings" on Facebook.

Marcus has done many stunning commissioned portrait paintings.

Andrea Anderson - She's a local artist. We were really pleased with the work she did for us. I'm sorry I can't seem to locate her contact info.

Betty Cooper in Carpinteria. I believe she is listed in the white pages and definitely whites pages dot com. Great portrait artist using various mediums.

Check with Jordan Pope at Portico Gallery on Coast Village Road. She has students and I bet you could get something really nice done by one of her students at a very reasonable cost. Tell her Dinah sent you. I am so sorry for your loss.

That Joann recommendation and website is weird! Don't want my portrait looking like that.

Carpinteria painter Rebecca Stebbins (see website of same name) - she mostly does still life and landscape work but occasionally does portraits in oil as well.

as an artist with 50 yrs experience with oils and acrylic, i could do this however i don't feel like advertising myself on edhat. a 'job' like this would be a minimum of a thousand dollars for a professional quality product.

I would check out Benjamin Anderson in Carpinteria.

I second Joann Dufau. I have seen her work in local galleries and the art museum, and I have enjoyed it.

Brandon Teris is an artist who graduated from USCB and now teaches art at a private school in the Bay Area. I spoke with Brandon and he and/or his students would love to do the portrait. I'm sure they would do a great job, and it probably would cost a lot less than local artists.

Google "Brandon Teris" to view his artwork. He can be contacted at 909-234-6688.
