Mermaid Mother Original Maternity Portrait Painting
Custom Maternity Portrait called "Mermaid Mother"

Why would anyone want Nude Maternity Portraits? 


This is an exciting time in your life and though at times it may feel like it goes on forever, it will soon be gone. Capture the excitement of the changes in your body and life with a Maternity Portrait Painting of yourself in all your pregnant glory. You will have this original painting to remind you of the wonderful sense of expectation that pervades your days and to share with your children and family. Of course, it needn't be nude! If you wish to be clothed or draped, that can also be just as elegant.


Or if you were thinking of a maternity portrait for a gift for your wife, partner, daughter, friend or loved one, what a wonderful way to help her feel cherished and beautiful at this time of change.


One of the wonderful things about having Nude Maternity Portraits done as paintings rather than just as photographs is that I can capture the essence of you and your feelings, and de-emphasize all those things you'd rather not keep for posterity. So, if you have swollen ankles, a rash or some other thing you'd rather not keep a record of just let me know and I won't put them in. Of course, this is also true of my Classical Nude Portraits.


Maternity Portraits, whether or not they are nude, are always done from photographs, so that you don't need to sit in one position for hours while I create your one of a kind original art piece. If you are on Vancouver Island BC or in the lower mainland (Greater Vancouver, BC area), I'd be happy to come to you to take custom art photographs to create your new fine art painting from. If you live elsewhere in the world, I will work from your favourite photo. You can choose whether to send it by email or snail mail. Either way, from the time that I have photographs, it will take 4-6 weeks for your piece to be completed.


You will need to make a few choices:

  • Do you want to pose alone for your maternity portrait? I also do portraits of nude couples and friends and parents with their babies. These don't have to be at all erotic and like all of the portraits, can be done completely nude, draped or costumed. With a commissioned portrait its up to you!
  • What size and shape would you like your custom art painting to be? Shape will be somewhat dictated by the pose you've chosen, so I will make recommendations, but size is totally up to you, from 4 inches to 4 feet in a variety of configurations.
  •  What colour would you like in the background of your portrait ? I use a variety of blues, browns and purples. The blues and browns create a more classical feel in the nude portraits and the purples feel a little more modern.
  • Do you want to have gold leaf or would you prefer pastel accents? Gold leaf adds to the old world flavour and richness of the artwork and also creates a radiant glow that warms the painting of your pregnant self. Pastels give a splash of contrasting colour and can be used to create the ground or the drapery if you are using some.
