oil on arches oil paper 12"x16" This painting will come mounted on archival foam core for easy framing unless otherwise requested. Portrait painting has been my greatest teacher and the subject matter that has made me a sought after teacher of painting. Since 2013 I have taken hundreds, maybe more like thousands of photos to better understand myself, life and relationships through observation and reflection. To keep practicing I often make a portrait painting, even as my more common subject matter drifts away from the portrait. These studies become opportunities to try out ideas. I don't know what the ideas are when I begin, but the act of painting for panting's sake always reveals them. Here I experimented with color and it's relation to texture and feeling. On my cheek you will see bubblegum type piece of paint, the more I liked a color the more pronounced the application of paint became.
