Working with Ariana
All commissioned paintings by artist, Ariana Richards, are created through close collaboration—each painting is begun with a personal visit with the artist, or from a distance.
For those who won’t be traveling, telephone and Skype or Skype video provide excellent modes for Ariana to get to know you. The process includes a meeting (in person or virtually) with Ariana, photographs, color studies, and conversations—all essential to creating a keepsake to be treasured for generations.
Of all the paintings that Ariana Richards offers, her commissioned pieces are fast becoming a favorite among collectors worldwide. Through the classical skills handed down from Old World masters, she has the ability to bring a sense of the subject’s special presence to the canvas.
Whether the painting is created with the natural light or an indoor setting, or within the changing lights of nature—providing a tangible and remarkable sense of person and place is the gift Ariana brings.
