If you are contemplating getting a custom ornaglyph but can’t decide on which photos to use consider getting a grouping. They can be arranged together on a wall or spread throughout your space as little (or big) reminders all over your house. They don’t even have to be the same sizes. Visit my Makeably page or email me if you are interested (info@ornaglyphology.com).

Hey, I’m Accommodating!

Hey, I'm Accommodating!

It isn’t often that I stray from my signature color palette. Recently I was commissioned to create a group of portraits for a family here in Chicago. I was asked to use an earthier scheme so I decided that it would be fun to change it up for once (and it’s always a treat to pick out new colors for my paint collection). So what I’m trying to say here is that if you like what I’m doing but want to coordinate your art with your curtains I am probably willing to accommodate you with color requests.

A note on custom orders and the holidays

24 Oct

With the holiday season approaching this is the busiest time at Ornaglypholgy Studios. All custom painting orders that need to be completed for the holidays need to be ordered by November 21st. Please keep in mind that I am a one person crew so the earlier they get in the better as I have a limited number of paintings that I can complete each month. If you order and I am booked up I will let you know and we will figure it out from there.

To order a custom painting visit: mindyfisher.com to pick your size and pay. Then email a photo or a description (or both) of what you would like to happen in the painting. Paintings usually take a couple weeks to complete but I do not finish them off until I’m satisfied with the quality…so give me a month. If you have any questions or need suggestions send an email to info@ornaglyphology.com. I can’t wait to work on this years batch of paintings!

From gods to dogs….

This week I worked on a small series of dog paintings. I wanted to have a recent example of what my pet portraits can look like and to also have some available on hand for the upcoming holiday season. If you have a request for a specific breed consider ordering a custom painting or shoot me an email with any questions at info@ornaglyphology.com.

Here is another painting that was ordered during the holidays! I wish I knew this cute pitbull’s name. Sometimes when there isn’t enough room for a speech bubble I’ll just create a wallpaper with the ornaglyphs. This piece is 6″ by 6″, gouache, on board. A new price sheet for custom orders is coming soon!

Ornaglyphs = Magic and Love

18 Dec

Recently I was commissioned to create this painting that a client ordered as a gift for her beau. She asked me to do whatever I wanted as long as it took place in the restaurant that she sent me photo of. Her boyfriend owns this restaurant in Europe. I’m being vague because he hasn’t received the painting yet (but she gave me permission to post it). I have never been asked to do a setting in one of my paintings so this was a challenge but I am very happy with how it came out.

When I sent my client a photo of the painting she sent me a couple emails that made me super happy. She told me how she met her boyfriend and that the painting eerily depicts it. This is an excerpt from one of the emails she sent me:

One more thing, and then I’ll stop gushing. The night I met M. — I was a customer(!) and he was working front of house (which he almost NEVER does, he’s always in the kitchen) — I stayed at the restaurant for hours. I even helped him close, and we sat alone in the restaurant talking until very, very late at night. The two lovebirds in the painting (the way they’re looking at each other!) — I’ve decided they’re M. and I. Well, those lovebirds are not only sitting at the same table that M. and I sat at, but they’re in the exact same PLACES. It makes me smile.

The reason this is so cool to me is because I work very spontaneously. Basically I sketched out the scene then added the characters in afterward before I painted it. There was no planning involved, no thumbnails and no consultations between my client and I.
