I love painting portraits and have always been fascinated by those artists who paint portraits. Over the years I have taken many photographs mainly of the people around me and many of which I love. However, for me, I believe the ultimate way of capturing the essence of those people is through the expression on canvas. A direction that I am striving toward in my painting. In my opinion, I don’t think there is a higher compliment that one can give a person, than by painting their image.
