The work on these pages is painted solely from life, from live sittings with real people or out in the open-air landscape. For better or worse, this is the way it pleases me to work. While the main purpose of this site is to show my wares as a portraitist, I wish to point out that I paint portraits because I love to, and that I require a considerable degree of freedom in executing commissions in order to stay interested. That said, I have found my adventures in commissioned portraiture over the years to have been happy experiences for all concerned.
