These are some of my favorite portraits that I've painted. My objective in portraiture is to paint a good picture and capture the character and essence of the person I'm painting, as opposed to an exact likeness. They are all people I admire in some way, whether they are famous or friends or family. I also have a gallery of self portraits and family here.Each thumbnail here clicks through to pictures with the new look and feel of the new site. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
