Live Portrait Painting

I love painting live and large, painting for this event was both, fantastic fun for everyone. The majority of this portrait was painted on site, and then back to my studio for finishing refinement. Stay tuned for upcoming events and come say Hi!

Another Year… Another Marilyn

Marilyn Monroe… What else needs to be said? Plenty actually, I was considering writing a “year in review” but I am an artist not a writer so I will keep it short. I want to thank all of the people in my life for their collective support making all the wonderful opportunities and travels I enjoyed in 2012 possible. Wishing you all continued success, happiness and love this New Year!

Angelina re-visited

While I have painted Angelina Jolie a few times, this specific painting I did some time ago was one I enjoyed yet never completely finished to my 100% satisfaction. A wonderful collector of mine inquired about Angelina paintings I’ve done, so I went searching my inventory. Naturally this painting drew me back in and reignited my enthusiasm to “add the gloss coat” so to speak on Angelina’s Lips.  Her lips being my favorite feature I emphasized them through soft focus in this painting.  Hope you enjoy this new release of Angelina’s Lips”.  The original is liquid lead style acrylic, charcoal and pencil 20″x30″ but is no longer available.   Artist Enhanced Fine Art Giclees gallery wrapped on canvas of Angelina  Jolie, “Angelina’s Lips” are available, 24″x36″ for $800 (Limited Edition) Contact me for more info on prints, other sizes also available.
