Painting Portraits

Although I love painting any subject and will paint upon any material, there has always been a special place in my heart for portraits. I think I enjoy the challenge of not only painting a likeness of someone, but trying to capture a fraction of the essence of who they are. I mainly work from photographs, especially when working with children, to give myself the time and space needed to paint the portrait. I've put just a few samples on this site of my portraits. I especially love to paint watercolor portraits of children, but also enjoy painting couples of all ages and anyone who will sit still long enough for me to photograph them!
