To Robbi Firestone, making Fathers Day gifts is an art...the fine art of oil portraits. What is the half-life of a usual Father’s Day gift? Posing for a Robbi Firestone oil portrait is a gift in itself for Dad. During a sitting, Firestone enables your Father to share the depth of his wisdom and experience, captured on canvas forever in an archival quality oil portrait.
Firestone paints oil portraits of prominent dads like celebrities Grammy Award Winner Keb’ Mo’, Christian rocker Bart Millard and intellectual luminary Michael Murphy.
Artist Robbi Firestone, founder of Spirit Capture Portraits, specializes in creating colorful oil portraits, which capture her client’s physical likeness and inner life. Portraying the spirit of her clients in her oil portraits captivates Firestone.
One of the most notable fathers that has been painted by Firestone is Keb’Mo’. Father of two, Keb’Mo is a three-time Grammy Award winner and eight time Grammy Award nominee. Keb’Mo’ is an accomplished and world-renowned contemporary blues guitarist and vocalist.
Another well-known father painted recently by Firestone is Bart Millard. Millard is an acclaimed Christian Rock musician, and front man for the best selling Christian rock band Mercy Me. (She began the portrait backstage at a sold out show, and unveiled it after another.) Best known for the crossover hit, “I Can Only Imagine,” MercyMe has been nominated for Billboard Music’s 2012 Top Christian Artist alongside other artists such as Casting Crowns, Skillet, Chris Tomlin & Laura Story. Millard is also an accomplished solo artist, being called the Best Male Vocalist by Christianity Today in 2005.

Murphy is best known as the co-founder of the Esalen Institute, a key figure in the Human Potential Movement, also author of The Future of the Body and other books on topics related to extraordinary human potential. Robbi Firestone is set to unveil Murphy’s portrait at Esalen's 50 Year Anniversary October 2012 with such guests in attendance as global visionaries Marianne Williamson, Katie Byron and Robert Reich.
