Traditional Oil Paintings
by Gordon Lynch


If you are anything like the rest of us, you have dozens of great photos that only see the light of day on rare occasions when you feel like reminiscing. A portrait of your son at age three for example, or that old photo of your grandparent's homestead taken in winter. 
If you are fortunate enough to have memorable photographs like these, imagine having an oil painting of that scene hanging above your mantle or other prominent place in your home or office.
The purpose of this site is to offer my services, which include over 25 years of experience in painting, and make it easy for you to commission a work of art. The painting techniques that I use are my interpretation of traditional methods that have been developed by artists for hundreds of years.

Why are we attracted to a work of art?
No one knows exactly what attracts us to a particular piece of art. But I believe whether we are conscious of it or not, a favorite work reminds us either of something we have seen before or something that is familiar to us. 

Sometimes it may remind us of a particular artist or style that we are fond of, but usually it is because it reminds us of a pleasant memory or event. 

Commemorating these experiences with a traditional oil painting is a unique expression of respect and admiration for a time or event that, while it may never come around again, it can be shared over and over by your family and descendants. Art is a great investment, and these days it may be the best value you can find online.

"Is there a better way to create art that reminds YOU of an important event than to work from a photograph
of that event?"

Please take a few moments to visit the Gallery or my Studio , where you can see my painting methods in a painting in progress.

How to Order 
It's very easy to commission a work of art. Just visit the corresponding "COMMISSIONS & PRICES" page for the type of painting you want, select your photo, and  fill out the order form . A step by step how to order guide is available, or if you prefer, you may contact me for a quote.

Snapshot To Heirloom Paintings are hand-painted traditional oil paintings done in a realistic manner. These are NOT digitally reproduced and printed on canvas as you may find on many other web sites. They are painted using much the same methods and techniques that have been used by artists for centuries.
