Family portraits by Dutch portrait painter Govert Muijs

Would you like to have your loved ones or you and your family, immortalized in a painting? Let me make a painting for you and your family. Using sketches, together we will think of a beautiful composition. After that I'll start painting and deliver a beautiful and unique, realistic painting of your family.

My work differentiates theirself by having the frame painted. It appears to be almost real and you can let people step from one painting into the other. The frame limits the Portrait, the subject wants to break through this limitation. This results in 'life' being possible outside of the frame and in better contact with the public.

In my family portraits the frame is a source of inspiration.

Consider the frame as a window, where, for example, on the other side of the glass a window cleaner cleans the window. Also with my Murals you can see that the painted subjects make contact with the real world. By painting realistically the subject takes you along.
