Commissioned Work & Other Paintings

 

I work from my photographs because of my love for the medium and my desire to show detail and realism in my paintings.  I have always felt that the camera is the closest thing to allowing the viewer to see what I see through my eyes.  However, what the eye sees and what the photograph captures is limited.  Unlike the camera, the mind has the ability to filter and focus on specific aspects of the picture.  It is then my task to emphasize what I feel are the most important elements in my painting. 

 

I paint with oils on stretched, acrylic-primed canvas.  I consider composition while I am taking the photograph; I want the structure of the work to be interesting, to have some sort of unique quality.  To accomplish this, I shoot from many different angles and viewpoints.  The uniqueness of the photograph depends on the camera angle.
