The painted portrait has been a staple of traditional interior design for many years. Once prominently displayed over fireplace mantles or in grand dining rooms, they fell from their important status as rooms slowly became more and more casual in design. We've run into one artist bringing the painted portrait into the modern world...

Although giving off the appearance of digital pixels, all of Kristine Baerlin's portraiture work is painted by hand. The signature circular pattern seen in her work is her unique modern style. Working with clients to come up with the perfect size and best color combinations, she customizes portraits to fit the style of your home. And with the fresh and modern aesthetic of this art, her pieces are bound to look great in any home, even traditional!

What do you think about this modern portraiture? Let us know!
