Portraits on Linen
Commissioned portraits and portraits that I have painted of my family and friends as demonstration pieces.
Portraits on Copper
Painting on copper is centuries old, not new. I am one of a handful of artists who paints portraits on copper. The unique glow that emanates through the many meticulously applied layers of oil paint gives glowing results unlike anything seen on canvas.
Most of my figurative pieces are painted from life. Through life studies I am better able to interpret what really exists beyond the information that photographs provide - light, perspective, aerial perspective, color, dimension, etc.
Dog and Horse Portraits
I draw on my experience as a dog handler when I was growing up and as a graphic artist drawing horses for a printing company in MA that made etchings from my drawings to sell to horse breeders and lovers.
Seascapes - Landscapes - Plein Air
Some of my seascapes and all of my landscapes are painted from life - en plein air - and from my photographs. Life studies are essential to paint believable seascapes that are based on photos.
