Lori Frank's Art Store
If you have a particular painting that you would like me to paint for you, feel free to contact me to discuss it. For my Edmonton river valley series about half of the paintings that I have done were commissions of peoples favourite stairways and trails. I also welcome any suited subject matter that you would like me to do for you. Previous other commissions have included a canola field, a lavender field in France and a painting of a little girl playing near the ocean in Italy. Generally how it works is we collaborate together and decide on the size you would like it to be (any sizes welcome) and determine the best recommendation based on your budget. I also welcome other commissions such as pet portraits and any subject matter that you would like done that is a fit for me to create. Pastel and pencil drawings of your favourite car are also something that I do and have a large portfolio of. And last but not least I welcome mosaic commissions upon request. 50% down payment is paid (by cash, credit card or etransfer) and the balance is due upon completion of your special keepsake original.

This is another special Gma house that I was asked to paint as a keepsake. This Gma took such special care to her flowers and home. Love it!
Everytime I do a pet portrait I fall in love with the pet that I'm painting. This is a special one as Achilles is sick and it is a gift from a mother to her daughter as a forever keepsake of him. Melt.
Holly's Gma is moving so as a gift to her she commissioned me to paint her Grandma's house to take with her to her new destination. What a lovely thing to do. Love painting family homes and have done so many now...touch base if you'd like one done too.
What a beautiful keepsake for a birthday gift! My clients hubby beautifully restored his truck and finished this labour of love after tinkering on it for ten years. Enjoy!
It was a pleasure to paint this beautiful car with the fall trees behind it. I did it as a surprise gift for my client as she threw out her boyfriends other painting that he had of it by mistake. lol
This special 12"x12" painting that I created in acrylics on birchwood panel is right up there with my all time favourite pet paintings now. I love the kitty on the chair and how I designed it to show the birchwood panel in the background. Touch base if you'd like a painting of your furball done too.
My client Teko envisioned the pastor of her church and his wife driving down a country road in the spring in their red Thunderbird convertible, so I made her idea come true. I can't wait for them to see this surprise gift at their going away party. It is getting custom framed next and that always elevates a piece even more.
It was such a pleasure to paint this for Teko and the Gospel Centre Church as a farewell gift to their pastor and his wife. May all of their upcoming travels be full of sunshine and joy!
This Bee and Sunflower painting was done in my textured experimental style. Look close and you will see all of the yummy texture. Its similar to the paintings I've done in my blossom series and mini canola fields. It was created for Nancy and is 12"x24" acrylics on a cradled birch wood panel. If you'd like one created for you touch base and I'll give you a quote. Cheers Lori
Nancy was thrilled to see her new baby! This was created from a photo that she took and provided and I'm so thrilled that she absolutely loves it!
This painting I did of the Black Dog on Whyte Avenue was a special commission for a couple that met there and fell in love. I'm selling this version to the public, but on their version their names are painted on the chalk board out front. I can't wait to be asked or to find the time to paint way more special places in our city! This one was 12"x12" and was acrylics on a cradled birch wood panel. The cost for that size is $500. 50 percent upfront and the balance upon completion.
It was such a pleasure to paint this gorgeous house that one of my collectors (Robert), owns and lives in with his family. this 16"x20" acrylic painting was a surprise gift for Christmas 2021. I'd love to paint your house too as a keepsake.

This special home is Mikhail's grandparents house. The original painting was done in acrylics on a 12"x12" canvas. I love painting special keepsakes of people's homes. Contact me for info. 12"x12" is the smallest I can do with all of the details and my unique style of painting. ;)
Such a sweet moment with the little girls viewing this painting for the first time. More details about it in the next photo. I love making my clients dreams a reality.
This is a super whimsical painting that I created for my clients. They loved another painting that I created of the "ice floats" called Rolling Down the River (under my winter river valley paintings); and asked if I could add snow to the trees, add pink and keep it super vibrant as their little girls just loved the other painting that I sold. So here it is! I'm thrilled to say that everyone loved this piece. I will have it available by request for reproductions and cards.
This painting was done of the wildflowers in the new area that is developed around our valley on the North side called North End Trails. I'm thrilled to have painted it for my client.

Such a pleasure drawing this beautiful '69 Camaro for a surprise gift for Deborah's husband. They live in Saskatchewan and I'm blessed that she found me and chose me to draw his "baby". It was drawn with pencils and watercolours pencils to ensure no smudging in transit. I drew it on Arches watercolour paper and it was done in a standard size 18"x24" to pop into a ready made frame with a mat. Contact me if you'd like one drawn too.
When I was asked to create a painting of Simba smiling in a field on the Westend that he always went to, I couldn't say no. I was able to reference another photo of him smiling and am so happy to have painted this keepsake of their fur baby. In the process of painting this I fell in love with Simba too. The original is 18"x24" and is acrylics on cradled birch wood panel. Contact me for a quote or send me an email.

I custom designed, created and installed this pillar in my clients home in April/17. If you are interested in any mosaic projects I would love to speak with you. I called it "Gaudi's in the House" as it is in primary colors (at my clients request), and I designed it loosely based on the famed architects iron gate. I used that as my inspiration and the rest is history. It is 26 square feet and over 9 feet high. I loved doing this project. See my home page for more photos of it.
This painting was created for a gift for family members. The original stayed with the collector and reproductions were made for the cousins for a special Christmas gift.
