Figure Painting

A nice thing about working in many mediums is the freedom to express ideas and explore different aspects of art. It also provides more alternative perspectives when responding to a request for a commissioned work of art.

Three copies painted after my favorite figurative painter, William A. Bouguereau. The first, “At the Fountain”, hung in the public library where I grew up in Evanston, Il. I used to stare at it in awe as a child. In 1996 I stood next to it to paint this copy, not realizing one year later the library would sell the original for $900,000!

“The Kimono” ……..”M. & B. Booth” …….. “I Am Here for You” (in progress)
