-—Portrait painting plus!—-
I tend to paint simple portraits, but I also do portraits that contain elements inspired by something in the subject’s life. In the work pictured here, the subject was a performer so I included his instrument. For more about the subject, go here.

-—Showing with Oregon Art Beat!—-
Oregon Public Broadcasting’s Oregon Art Beat has been featuring regional art for fifteen years now, and, to celebrate, OPB and its artists are putting on a show. For more information about the exhibition, go here.
