Here are some images of portraits I have painted long ago,
back in the early 1980's.
I like to work from photos.
If I can take the photo myself it's even better.

This is an oil painting of my parents wedding photo.
I painted this for their 25th Wedding Anniversary.
This is my Grandmother Bell.... my Dad's Mom.
I've always had a strong connection to her,
even though she passed away when I was only 2 yrs. old.
Here is a time when I was really into clowns. I still love them,
but I used to enjoy painting them.
This oil painting was done from photos I found.
Then Circus World opened and I was super happy.
I would go often with camera in hand.
The oil painting below is one that I created from the photos I took.

Like any artist my work has gone through several changes.
I thought it would be fun to post some of the paintings
that still hang in my parents home.
More recent portraits I have painted was for a
theatrical production of “The Secret Garden”
at Merritt Island High School.
These were very large and airbrushed on a shark-tooth scrim.
You can find my newest work on this blog and in my ETSY store.
