Portrait painting is the most demanding work I do as an artist. Capturing a likeness, pleasing the client and creating a beautiful painting are all necessary challenges that grow my artistic and diplomatic skills. Painting portraits has often resulted in new friendships and a client's increased appreciation for art. These are a few of the many portraits I have painted. The examples include portraits from life and portraits painted from photo reference. Some of these paintings are portrait studies completed in a couple of hours, some a couple of days, and highly finished paintings took about a week to paint.
