Oil Paintings


My Oil Paintings come from images that I have in my mind, places that I have been, or from a photo that someone wants a custom painting done of a place where they have been. I also paint from photographs that I have taken.  In some cases I may take bits and pieces from different photos that I have taken and combine them into one painting.

Portraits are a one of kind painting,  I work from a photo normally.  I usually  take my own stills of the person.  I always like to to meet with the person, and talk to them.   I like to find that one special thing about their personality,  the look in their eyes, their own expressions.  I take a lot of notes, and sometimes I will snap photo of the person during the interview process,  Then when I start to paint I try to pull all of this into the portrait. This is how I can capture their individual personality.  I really feel that this is want makes the portrait of the person,  makes the painting come alive,  and represents the person that I am painting.

I hope you enjoy my work
