I commissioned a painting by Dave of my boss, her husband and their dogs in an historic setting. The painting was a surprise retirement gift so I provided Dave with an assortment of photos of my boss and her husband and we communicated via email.
In fact, I never met Dave in person until I picked up the painting.  The final painting was exquisite and exceeded my (and other donors) expectations . Dave captured in the painting what I could not clearly express. He has an artistic gift.
Dave is very easy to work with, a true professional. He also chose a beautiful frame for the painting. On a scale of 1 to 10, the finished work was a 20. I will certainly hire him again.

I commissioned Dave to paint a portrait of our two cats. His painting technique is simply stunning and extraordinary. You can see soul and positive energy in every brushmark that goes on the canvas.

I reached out to Dave to help with a special anniversary present—a painting of our home. I knew he did fine work based on some of the previous commissions he shares online, but he did an exceptional job giving warmth to our little townhouse. His attention to detail is remarkable. He even included some extra items I requested, like having my dog sitting out front. My dog’s pitch black fur makes him hard to capture even in photos, but Dave seems to have mastered the color palette because he really brought him to life. My wife said it is her new favorite art piece in the house, and I agree. An added bonus is that Dave is just a really nice guy to work with, and he makes it a collaborative process. I highly recommend!

I found Dave after a long search for the right artist to paint our childhood home as a gift for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. He was so patient and thoughtful. The home has changed through the years and Dave managed through many different photos in time to create exactly all the right details. It was a very easy process for me and we are thrilled with the outcome! It’s beautiful.

I love my art that I commissioned Dave to do! It is exactly as I envisioned! Dave was wonderful to work with and communication was excellent. I explained exactly what I wanted and he transferred that right on to his canvas. Not only was he easy to work with but he seems like a genuinely nice guy. I would highly recommend this talented artist! Thank you Dave.

Dave was awesome to work with. I asked him to create a custom piece and the final product was better than I could have imagined. He was very communicative and was a pleasure to work with. I can’t say enough great things about him and his art!

I love Dave White’s work! His paintings are meaningful, yet lighthearted portraits that have not only become fun conversation pieces in our home, but treasured family heirlooms.

Dave has created two oil on canvas paintings for me thus far: a portrait of my wife and me in Barcelona, Spain and a pet-portrait of my French bulldogs standing on a forest path. I couldn’t be happier with the quality of Dave’s work and was surprised by how easy he made it to commission a painting. As a Christmas gift for my in-laws, I recently commissioned a third Dave White painting – a portrait of my wife and her sister enjoying a glass of wine at a local vineyard. I’m excited to see how it turns out and confident my wife’s parents will love it!

Dave is not just a talented artist, he’s a reliable and courteous professional and it’s always a pleasure doing business with him. To anyone interested in commissioning a painting, I give Dave White my highest recommendation.

Matthew F., McLean, VA

Highly recommend Dave White. He did a great job with a canvas painting of our new home; it had incredible attention to detail. We asked for a modern/contemporary style and he accommodated no problem. We had a special request to add our cat into the painting (on the porch) and it came out perfectly. Additionally, he created a custom frame for us and matched it to the colors in the painting perfectly. He was communicative throughout the process with updates and was timely in delivery. We received a high-res digital copy as well.

I described to Dave White, on short notice, what I would like for a gift. Dave was awesome. He had a rough draft in a very short time and turned the project around quickly, so we had a unique, and personal gift! Thank you Dave! You rock!
