I create two very distinctly different original portraits. My paintings are all painted with high quality acrylic paints on gallery quality 36 x 36 inch stretched and framed canvas. They are simple and complex at the same time. I use the size and colors to showcase what I believe to be their over riding personal quality. Sometimes serious, sometimes playful, sometimes reassuring, and sometimes embattled.
My graphite portraits are drawn on 16x20 Bristol/Vellum artist paper. I use a number of extremely soft artist graphite pencils to create extremely detailed textures and features. These unique portraits highlight the importance of these iconic figures.
