Welcome to my Fine Art Gallery
I consider myself a figurative painter of portraits in a mixed medium. I enjoy painting a variey of people and animals. I work from both photography and life.
My work can include graphite, charcoal, pastel, and gold leaf. However, my favorite mediums for one painting are watercolor, acrylic, and oil. I use a glazing process I studied from the ‘Old Masters’, my favorite being Rembrandt. I often will work on several paintings at one time because of the time consuming drying process between layers. Some of my paintings will take months to finish with this process. Though challenging and requiring a great deal of patience, I find this method very rewarding. The paintings come alive with a luminous quality that gives each of them incredible depth and beautiful color.
