THE MAJESTY OF OILS
Oil paintings have a long tradition in portraiture and are highly prized by many for their depth of color and rich luster. I employ a painterly style when working in oils, blending loose brushwork with a realism to create an impeccable likeness of your pet while also celebrating the paint as a medium of expression.
I find what makes a painting beautiful is being able to feel the presence of the artist within the portrait. It is this human touch, apparent in each brush stroke that is laid onto the canvas, that brings life to the painting. My intention is not to create just a resemblance of the animal but to capture the essence of their personality. These are paintings meant to be enjoyed not only as a portrait but also a cherished work of art.
