Approaching storm, 15in. x 30in., oil
This landscape depicts a summer thunderstorm fast approaching along the Intracoastal waterway in South Carolina. It was such a dramatic sight in person, I aimed to relay that drama in the paint application, scale and color selection for the painting.

This portrait takes the prize for the most adventuresome photo shoot award. Around a lake, over a bridge, climbed down a bank, balanced upon a rickety dock, all for some portrait-perfect photo references of two of the most cooperative and well-mannered young men with whom I've ever worked! Eli, 20in. x 24in., oil on linen

Spencer, about whom I previously posted, is the precious little guy who knew how to make a photo shoot fun! I was pleased with the simplicity of this head and shoulders and felt it captured him well. Sometimes it takes paring down some of the information, colors, etc. to appreciate the complexity of the actual portrait itself.
