New Series

These paintings come from a series I have begun as an aside to my portrait commission work. I have found that placing less emphasis on the subject's likeness, in this new body of work, has been refreshing  and allowed me to embrace the color, lighting and design of my painting all the more. Regularly, I will paint a still life or landscape in between portraits to stretch myself as an artist, as well as my focus. Hopefully, these paintings act similarly to strengthen my work as a whole, but also keep the figure, even if it is serving a different role, present in the painting.
