“What adds life in portraiture, is to maintain the realistic head sizes of all the subjects whenever possible”
– Dick Zimmerman
My goal as a Portrait Artist Painter is to create a timeless masterpiece, a work of art for whoever it may be. I am motivated and insist on every commission to be the highest and most aesthetic quality possible.
A painting is never complete, and it’s only up to the artist to decide when! I continually look over and over my work in progress and continue to refine it, make changes by continually walking away from the canvas, sometimes for days enabling me to look at it with in a new unit of time with a fresh eye and evaluate its progress. I judge its completion when I fall in love with each painting and feel it’s now part of my family and feel hesitant to part with it…then I know it’s finished…but reluctantly always do part ways! At that point I then get enormous pleasure from the client’s emotions and validation upon their first gaze when first sliding it from the crate…I want you to experience great pleasure from my creativity, by owning a museum quality work of art that you will be proud of each time you gaze for many years to come…and that’s my motivation!!!
“I am always open to explore the possibilities of changers is my viewpoint & experimentation of a new direction and approach to creativity”
