Oil on Canvas, 24″ x 30″
A few years ago, my brother-in-law asked me to do his portrait. He loves the old west and talks about his happiness operating a small ranch he owned years ago, I created this portrait of him as a rancher to honor those memories.
2020 has been a year of challenges for my artistic awareness bringing change and growth to my paintings. As self-isolation and covid travel restrictions continue my exploration of nature diminished resulting in less inspiration for landscape painting. I was able to focus my artistic sense into other subjects. I have started exploring portraiture merging people with nature and modern styles with classical technique.
