This collection of paintings are some of my most colorful ones yet. The paintings are meant to bring happiness. My work is incredibly realistic. The paintings are either based on pictures that I take, or a still life I set up. Several of the paintings use a combination of reference photos and objects, so that I can achieve the most accurate and stunning portrayal possible. I use many thin layers of acrylic paint to build the painting. This gives the work a three dimensional look highlighted by vivid colors. I often listen to music while I paint, and although the process is very time consuming, I find it incredibly relaxing and enjoyable. I hope that others can enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it and that it brings happiness to those viewing it!Read More
