For this commissioned portrait, titled “Kristin,” composition and lighting were key in capturing the subject’s personality.  The light, reflection, and flow found in the hair was an important part of this work.

“Katie” was one of the first portraits that I have painted.  The challenge was not letting the red dress dominate the fairness of the skin.  I also focused on the softness and play of light in the hair.

Jar with Pear was a study  in reflection and light, using some kitchen items that were readily available.  Close attention was paid to the reflectivity within the glass and also the the subtleties found within the surface of the pear.
