Traditional Oil Painting

My paintings exist to glorify my subjects. They are all spec paintings and I paint what I love. I haven’t done commission work but I can if you would like something.

With these traditional paintings I isolate my subjects and not clutter up the canvases with stuff.  I paint in oil using a variety of techniques and styles, my favorites being on-canvas color mixing, grisaille and layering and alla prima. I use the finest archival materials and I love one- and two-inch gallery wrap canvases. On these I paint the edges one color. This is usually because there are  nearly imperceptible gradations in some of my paintings. The way I do it creates natural borders, clean lines and you don’t need to frame them.
