    Personalized oil painting (approx. 24x36") based on your favorite photograph! Do you have a favorite photograph that you would like immortalized as an original oil painting? I paint about 6-12 canvases a year "on commission." Examples of commissioned work can be found under PAINTINGS on my website, www.charlescushing.com. The painting would be executed when I return from Buenos Aires. It could have a related theme (you dancing tango? a favorite location, special memory, etc.?) or be something completely different.
