Serenity in the Highlands
The journey for Michael Glover is more important than the destination and after more than a decade of crossing Canada, his paintings bear witness to the journey. A painter, musician, storyteller, writer and passionate Canadian, Michael’s search for the less traditional picturesque parts of this country document the often overlooked or unseen. His paintings, although landscape in nature, do not follow conventional subject matter. Michael is attracted to the abandoned and isolated parts of the Canadian landscape, the rusted and deserted, the unused and unwanted.
David Martin – Montreal, Quebec, Canada
A great feature here at Newport Brushstrokes is our ability to convert a treasured family photograph into a museum-quality, hand-painted oil on canvas, and so impressed have I been with the results that I felt compelled to commission two such moments from my own family album; a black and white… shot of my eldest daughter with her husband on their wedding day, and a color picture of my youngest daughter with her baby son, both of which can be seen here, beside this employee’s own testimonial.

Our thanks go out to David Martin who delivered on his assurance that we would love the paintings of our two lovely young granddaughters, Maisy and Ruby, and we did.

Tilli created a beautiful painting of my mother, brother in his military uniform and myself. She created tis painting with not just one but three different photographs combining us into one painting which could not have been simple. The artists portrayal of the three of us shows great emotion and… thought. Read more “Martha Hawkins – Zimmerman, MN”

My husband and I were looking for a long time to have a painting done from our entire family (22 people). After meeting Newport brushstrokes at a party show in Montreal we knew we can stop searching for an artist! Thanks to Bram who assisted us all the way thru,… from sending in the picture, to all the edits and more edits… Our picture is magnificent and hanging in my parent dining room! Thanks to all the people that were involved from Newport! Read more “Shaindy Framowitz – Montreal, Quebec, Canada”

My wife and I wanted a formal oil painting and we had heard of Newport Brushstrokes Fine Art in Montreal. We talked to David Martin who explained the process in detail. We sent him a digitized picture and within a couple of weeks he sent us a digitized proof of… our oil painting. We discussed a few minor changes with David and with in a few weeks we received our beautiful framed oil portrait. We highly recommend David and Newport Brushstrokes Fine Art for anyone interested in a great oil portrait. Read more “Paul Wiesner – Las Vegas, NV”

Lauren Hammack – Oklahoma City, OK
The four headmaster portraits are exceptional! Your artists have done a remarkable job in creating such true likenesses of these men for whom, in most cases, we had only a small photo as a visual reference. Allowing us to see the paintings during the process was so nice — even… though the artists were all spot on, it gave us the opportunity to suggest modifications mid-course, should we need any. We’re so pleased to have these portraits in hand before the dedication of the school’s headmasters leadership gallery. I know it will mean so much to the families of the headmasters to see such a beautiful tribute to their fathers. Bram’s attention to this project has been equally masterful. He is the consummate client advocate, with unfailing follow through. We look forward to future projects! Kindly, Lauren Hammack Read more “Lauren Hammack – Oklahoma City, OK”

I’ve have seen the picture and enjoy it. I like it now and appreciate so much for this change. I will recommend Newport for photo to oil on canvas conversions to my friends and family. The frame is beautiful and the quality of the photo to canvas oil is very… good. I like the way your team answered my questions and helped me with my decisions. You really listened to me.

Brenda Bissell Morey – U.S.A
Just hung my lovely recreated portrait. I had two 50 year old photos of an ancestress’ painted portrait (1840). The portrait has disappeared over the years but Newport Brushstrokes was able to recreate it for me from two photos. The painting is accurate, with the rich colors and textures of… the original with amazing detail. My 84 year old father who had seen the original many times during his youth, swears it is a duplicate of the original but better with better than original color and clarity. Newport Brushstrokes has allowed me to return my ancestress’ portrait to our family. Read more “Brenda Bissell Morey – U.S.A”
