Gillian is seen seated in the middle in pink with the short hair.
I asked Gillian to take some secret snaps of her brother and sister's Silhouettes (lest the surprise be spoiled!), and give me the approximate measurements of the portraits. I explained if she did this, then I could better "mimic" the size, style and cameo shape of the original artist, thus making her new Silhouette blend in more seamlessly with the older ones.
The existing Silhouettes measured in at an itty bitty 2 1/2" high x 1 1/2" wide! Gillian also went on a Knight's errand looking for a frame to match, and found a good square one to go with hers. She plans on placing the square frame in between the two ovals.
I think it's only fair that she be the focal point after all these years of being MIA!
Some "rather different" Silhouette services I supply are:
- Making Silhouettes from old and archival photos. Click on this link: http://www.paperportraits.com/GALLERY_Brynner.html to see a prime example in my Gallery section. Academy Award winning actor Yul Brynner and family members "posed" for this very unusual portrait!
- Silhouettes of your dearly departed loved ones of all ages: children, spouses that have passed, or your precious pets.
- Silhouettes that have acquired fire or water damage can be reproduced to look like the originals. (I did quite a few of those after Hurricane Katrina!)
- Family Tree Silhouettes (see my blog here for more information about the subject)
