I think of my style and my work as a combination of realism and impressionism. I paint from life whenever possible and work diligently to capture its nuances. I am currently focusing on capturing figures and figures within expressive landscape settings.
Paintings consist of Individuals or Families, generally done in a studio setting or from photographs. Photos need to be high enough quality so that the subjects are lit well. Fee is based on the number of subjects and complexity of the setting
Are any paintings that have a general subject of landscape, a place or setting. Pets can be of any creature that you wish and are priced according to complexity
No matter what I did or tried, I couldn't change or deny that I am a dreamer and believe in it, and thanks to my "trademark" I am living my dream. A dream of being an artist.
Sensitive, emotional, sentimental and whimsical may be some of my personality, But I rely on these feelings to inspire my art work. I like things that touch me quietly and simply. Little things, things we see everyday... falling leaves, waving trees, unnamed wild flowers, fog rolling over the hilltops, a small stream passing a grassy field, crows perched on top of a ruined wall under a gray sky... They speak to me in the most pure sound of beauty. I don't really need a cry-my-eyes-out or laugh-my-ass-off kind of moment to feel emotionally inspired. I seek a feeling that might woosh past in a second. But that second of emotion combines a complex faint taste of sweetness, bitterness, happiness, and sadness. That is the precious moment that I want to capture and share. It is a kind of natural beauty that I thirst for. Not glorious or fancy, just something simple, something pure.
