INVESTMENT IN YOU

How would you like to be remembered, now and for  generations to come?  How much is this worth?

I know the answer to this question because your life  is unique   –  special,  expressive. It has felt love.  It has felt pain.  This is why I have chosen to create an heirloom portrait  –  personal art for you  –  timeless and priceless. You want this portrait  –  that special gift for him, which allows him to see who you as you feel – beautiful and sensuous.  You want this memory for your children.  You want this for yourself and … you deserve it!

Indeed, I do start with a digital camera and initially an image of you is captured  in my studio or on location – where ever in country or the  world you may like for me to be.  It is  then my vision of you which I bring forth. In a very artistic  and  fashion I craft your unique, elegant and sensuous expression. It is to be luxurious and the pursuit of your ultimate perfection.

Portrait Painting of Girl

Portrait of a Girl – 9×12 Oil on Gessoed Board 

I think portraits are the most challenging images to paint – even using a reference photo.  As you can see below, I create a very loose sketch initially and then work into the detail. I also always want to bring some level of artistic expression and creativity to the painting rather that to just to paint what I see. This can be challenging to envision, and a bit frightening to execute. I have to let go and take chances.  I consider it better to try and screw up than to play it safe.

I  always like this stage of a painting.
