Oil Portraits of Pets & People

  • This gallery of handcrafted portraits celebrates my collector's love for their family, pets and children. Subtle nuances, gazes and gestures enhance the enduring familial bond. Carefully mixed hues and values combined with energetic brushstrokes enliven each loved one portrayed. Fine-tuning the depth of expression of each work requires considerable creative thought and time.
