Oil on canvas, 60 × 36 in.
Private collection, Chicago, USA
Although I am usually inspired by projects with open themes, I also enjoy the challenge of painting portraits. I derive great pleasure from painting faces and trying to bring out the best in them while remaining the artist I am—and not a substitute photographer. The trust and freedom of expression given to me by those who I paint are critical.
I am willing to discuss all portrait projects with you, even if traveling is required. Please contact us for information on our terms and availability.
