i want to ask people for some suggestions:
my folks really like paintings of ballroom dancing.
either pencil/pen sketches or oil on canvas paintings.
can anyone recommend or /how to find a good artist that's reasonably priced? reasonably being say under 1k$ for a 36x48 or a 30x40.
Don't know where to look for something similar but my mother in law has a few costume sketches (what a costume designer would do prior to a movie and actually making the clothing) of couples dancing. Some period piece (think Gone with the Wind type, no idea what movie it actually was). Pencil sketch and then hand coloured. Different and interesting.
I'm sure there are auctions centered around those types of things and I doubt they would be hugely expensive most of the time.
