Childrens Portraits Childrens Portraits
In today’s digital world most parents and grandparents have tons of photos of the little ones in their lives.  But a hand painted life-size oil portrait or drawing shows how really special that child is and will last for generations to come.

While I have done several posthumous portraits of family and friends, painting and drawing historical subjects both famous and anonymous are very challenging.  In 2011, I was asked to explore creating artwork about the civil war which is a most difficult task when working strictly from vintage photographs of the era.  Photography was in its infancy and the lighting was harsh and glaring, not to mention the pose had to be held for approx. 20-30 seconds . A painting of this nature is at least 3 times as difficult to 'bring to life' compared to using a good modern print or digital image. Drawings are much easier, but still a challenge. However, the satisfaction is immense when a painting is nearly complete and you feel you have shed new light on old subjects that were just names and blurry photos in forgotten history books.
