52nd National Catalog


Braided is an oil painting on linen painted from life at a model session I attended in Fort Worth, Texas. In my daily life I often encounter people or places I am drawn to, and that is where I begin “the process” of bringing my vision to fruition. ‘London’ was the model for this portrait and when I met her she was so natural and easy going - it made my job so much easier. I always strive to know and reflect the inner person when I am painting figures or portraits. I have close friendships with many of my models, their inner beauty as well as outer beauty, a joy to bring to life.
