‘Larry’

‘It is hard to find a gift that delights my husband. This year I commissioned a custom portrait from Jay Fortune. Larry was not only delighted, he was moved to tears. The portrait now hangs in our dining room where it brings all of us on-going joy.

Working with Jay was a pleasure. The portrait arrived safely and speedily. Jay is a thoughtful and collaborative painter. I felt I was part of the creative process. I wasn’t sure a custom portrait of this quality was within our reach but it was surprisingly affordable.

My husband is always gracious about the Father’s Day ties and books we give him. But this year he was truly speechless and moved. I am so happy to have found a way to show him how special he is to us.’ – M. Hass, Memphis, USA.

‘Tree of Life’ 

‘I commissioned Jay to paint a black and white version of the tattoo on my back. He floored me with his great vision, eye for detail and craftsmanship and painted an incredible, life-like piece of art. Worth every penny.’ – G. Parker, Amsterdam, Holland. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Magic Memories’ 

‘Everyone who has seen it, loves your painting. Thank you so, so, so much. The fact you got it done so quickly and in time for our anniversary made it even more special. It is on display in our Great Room as the center piece of artwork. Everyone comments on it. You have captured one of our most treasured memories perfectly. It’s more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Thank you. We love it and will cherish it forever.’ – T. Meseroll, Los Angeles, USA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Wendy’

When I started seeing Jay’s work I was so impressed, I knew instantly that he was the perfect person to commission for my portrait. It was such a simple process from sending him the photo to paying and receiving the framed item. The detail and likeness is incredible; Jay has captured the essence of my mum in this portrait. It takes pride of place in my living room now and I know that my mum would be eternally grateful to Jay for producing such an amazing memory of her.’ – M. Herd, London, UK

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Rock On II’ 

‘Jay has been a friend for many years and when he displayed his painting “Rock On” I was inspired to commission something similar for myself. Jay guided me through the process from drafting ideas, getting ideas of image, payment and delivery. The 30” x 30” artwork is wonderful – Jay is an artist in the true sense of the definition by St. Francis of Assissi. Thank you for my first artwork commission, and for making it a great experience.’ – S. Ridlington-White, London, UK 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Public Enemies’ (Awaiting Photograph)

‘We’d like to thank Jay for our fabulous piece of commissioned art!  This is very personal to us as it’s taken from a photograph at our fantastic wedding day 17 years ago. We wanted the piece to reflect the similar style to which our photographer used that day but with the ‘Jay Fortune” spin! Well, Jay did not disappoint and captured this perfectly. It’s such a statement that totally reflects our humour and will provide a great talking point with friends and family. Gives us all a good giggle. It’s totally us. Thanks so much….da Gangsta’s.’ – D. Bamford, London.

‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ (Awaiting Photograph)

‘I commissioned Jay to create a special portrait for my husband’s 50th. I had an idea of what I wanted and Jay not only expanded on it but created it in record time! The finished portrait is amazing, and great value for money. I know this special gift will be in our family for years and years. Thanks so much Jay! I’m now planning his Christmas present and you’re top of our list to help again.’ S. Fletcher. UK
