Lynne Randolph Fine Art
Beautiful paintings acclaimed for their warmth and realism
I love creating paintings that reflect joy and delight. In a world with much darkness, I hope my work adds a little warmth and light.
I have been creating art—drawing, painting, calligraphy, sculpture--for as long as I can remember. I have painted all kinds of subjects in oils, acrylics, watercolor, and pastels, but portraits are my passion.
Why a portrait?
A hand-painted portrait of a loved one is a lasting treasure. It can reveal the depth and unique personality of the subject in a way that is very different from a photograph.
Let me create a portrait of someone you love.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE PASTELS?
Pastels are a fine art medium made of pure pigment and binder. The quality of the materials and method of painting are similar to oils, and pastel portraits can last for centuries. Because pastel is a dry medium, it must be handled carefully, and protected behind glass. For local clients I offer framing; otherwise I ship unframed, ready for you to take to a framer.
I will create a beautiful pastel painting from your photograph. For this reason, the quality of the photograph is critical. For best results, the photo should be focused, in high resolution (at least 2M), taken in natural light if possible. Sometimes I work from multiple photos.
Every painting is unique, and the subject, along with the client’s preference, will determine the size. For one subject that includes head, neck and shoulders, standard pricing is: 8 x 10: $195; 9” x 12”: $225; 11” x 14”: $325. Add 25% for a full figure, and 25% for each additional subject or a complex background. Larger sizes are also available. 30% deposit due before work starts.
FRAMING: Add $70 for framing up to 11 x 14.
