I can’t seem to escape the portrait. Whether painting a commissioned portrait, a figurative piece, or a single rose, it’s still a portrait to me. Each thing, animated or not, has life… a spirit, an essence. The thing in front of me is as essential as the brushstrokes I put on the canvas. I look for the beauty inside form and rust, the beauty inside of humanity, the beauty that resides in a person’s spirit. This beauty has nothing to do with the perfection of the object, nothing to do with having the right nose shape, or the smoothness of one’s skin.
I aspire to paint a portrait where you are certain it is about to take a breath, or seems to be thinking or feeling something. I aspire to paint an object that you want to touch with your eyes. I invite you to enjoy the unique beauty I’ve discovered in my subjects.
