Title: Self-portrait
6" x 6"
oil on archival panel

I did this painting a couple of months ago for a daily painting challenge. Aside from doing the plein air work I love, I joined the ranks of daily painters in 2009. I've found it to be immensely rewarding. Every day there's a fresh start and you can redeem yourself ; )

 "Self Portrait 2000" 
 80 x 100 cm  
oil on canvas

I am a photorealistic painter who is painting serial portraits in oil. I am interested in persons who are not famous or social privileged. I am most interested in misfits and underdogs or groups of people who are not popular. But my current portrait-project is about bloggers as the users of the web 2.0. So it´s called portraits_2null.

The Gold and blue arabesques in the background symbolize my, representing calmness, purity and positivity and gold, representing divinity, spirituality and mysticism...

 This painting is 20 x 16-inches and is oil on canvas.  I titled it, "Thinking of Dad".  I just did this painting two days ago, in response to the death of my father.  He passed away on Feb. 27, 2011, at the age of 89.  I don't have a decent photo to do a proper memorial portrait of him, so this is something of a twist on that idea

Since his passing, it's not unusual during quiet moments of the day, to find myself drifting back to memories of him.  Four days ago, when snapping out of one of those moments, I decided to grab my camera and take my picture in the pose as best I could re-create it.
