Tell me your story – I will do a custom painting for you. It will be painted to your
specifications as to size, color theme, materials, and general style. Please visit My Work
to see samples.
My background in the middle of the 20th century trained me to draw what I see, and by using my intuition and imagination I can work in any style. I like impressionism the best. I love to do portraits of people to make them look better than they actually do. In my early years I did hundreds of pastel portraits from live sittings at art shows that taught me to interpret personality as well as to obtain a likeness. I use photos as tools and a point of departure, not as something to copy.
I request a 20% down payment to cover the materials and a portion of my time but after seeing the painting if you are not happy with it you are not obligated to complete the purchase.
Please feel free to comment about my work or ask questions about what I can do for you.
