There are many who see fine art as therapy. Not me. I see fine art as the ultimate challenge.
The challenge is not meeting the expectations of a client, but meeting my own high bar of achievement.
Is it good enough to paint an apple, or is it better to create a new way to see apples?
With portraiture, it’s the challenge of showing in individual from a different angle, not seen before.
All the while, working with realism, depicting objects exactly as they appear.
I work in pen-and-ink on paper as well as acrylics, creating colors from the primaries and white.
