DelaFoto's Handmade Canvas Art

June 26, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

I've been offering canvas art since the very beginning. As a portrait photographer, specializing in timeless portraits of pets & their family members, I really wanted to find the "best of the best" in the canvas medium. Last year I started working with a family business that creates their cotton canvases from scratch. They use a 50+ year tradition of museum quality canvas-making (not inkjet printing).  The final artwork has proven to be unique looking and heirloom quality, clients LOVE it!

I just created this brief video showing how our canvases are now made. Watch until the end, to see some recent installations!


Art in the Home

Sometimes it can be hard to imagine how perfect portraits of pets & their families can be in a home.  Now that I'm providing not only canvases, but custom framing, delivery and installation of client's artwork, I get to see how wonderfully it all comes together. From modern to traditional, Colorado homes are rich in color and textures, spacious and bright and so much fun to decorate with fine art!

East Evans Animal Hospital is moving to a beautiful new location right across the street from their existing building.  The  modern, cheerful and spacious facility will be home to DelaFoto's latest art exhibit.  DelaFoto will be featuring different artwork over the year, with plans to update every for 4 months or so. The first installment is light & bright with a mix of canvas and framed prints of cats & dogs of all ages.  You will see these featured in the front entrance sitting area.  Additional artwork is on display in one of the exam rooms. 

Thank you to the great folks at this beautiful new facility for inviting DelaFoto to exhibit and for all the enthusiasm as the artwork was recently set-up.  East Evans Animal Hospital will be having their grand opening on February 10th, I hope you'll go and check them out!

Cover Contest 2017!

DelaFoto partnered with Mile High Dog Magazine for our 4th Annual Cover Contest on September 16th at Wag 'N Trail. While it was a grey and chilly one this year, we did have another record breaking day! With 115 dogs entering to win a chance to be the next Cover Model for the magazine's Holiday issue! Together we raised $570 for Dumb Friends League.

Our tent/photo booth had a steady flow of dogs through the morning and while there were a number a familiar faces, there were many new ones too.  The entire gallery is now being reviewed to find the top 3 dogs (selected by Mile High Dog Magazine). Then those three contenders will be featured on Facebook, where we will have a public voting for the winning pup!

The big winner will get a full hour outdoor session with DelaFoto and the best image will be featured on the Magazine Cover. It's always exciting to see who will come out as top dog each year! Stay tuned...

 

 


DelaFoto Portrait is Street Art!

August 30, 2017  •  2 Comments

BlogBlog I had the pleasure of meeting local artist, Patrick McGregor for a studio photo session with his wife and two Dobermans. At the end of our session we talked about pet paintings and I learned about his street mural work.  Soon after the final DelaFoto images were complete, Patrick selected one of his dog "Kita" for this grand mural.

Patrick is one of about 30 artists featured at Denver's viaduct walls public-art installation (at York Street & 46th Ave). It'll only be there until new construction along i70 begins in 2018. If you're in the neighborhood or just love street art, I hope you'll go check it out!

This is the original image that Patrick so skillfully replicated:
