I have always been fascinated with color and the subtlety of light and shadows on those colors. To paint everyday objects with attention to fine detail, I often set up still lifes in my studio or work from photos I’ve taken with my iPhone. I especially like to paint classic car portraits. Each car has its own unique beauty, design, and character that I try to capture with my oil paints. It is impacted by the surrounding environment, especially the chrome and glass surfaces.
