Born to be King

This painting was the most fun I've ever had with a commission. It is a "portrait" of my client's boyfriend, without his physicality appearing in the work obviously. More a portrait of his essence and what makes him tick. The Arabic lettering on the right is in 24 karat gold leaf and says Born to be King.

Savannah Fountain

This is the famous fountain in Forsyth Park in Savannah. I had intended to paint this on location and managed it for one day, but between getting scorched from the sun and the wind occasionally wanting to take the canvas away, I finished it in the comfort of my apartment!

Portrait in Savannah

This is the first portrait I've done since being back in the States. I posed Robin Robinson Greco of Savannah in her living room
, after learning what she liked and after going through her closet to get the feel of what I thought would best reflect her for this piece.
