Here is the finished oil painting entitled “Heaven Shining Through.” Our family friend Jorn took a photo of the sunrise when climbing the Aconcagua mountain in Argentina, from which this painting is based. I was very impressed by the photo and felt that it’d make a great painting, so here it is!
When I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Costa Rica, I climbed Mount Chirripó and saw some really amazing views, but this one of Aconcagua is just something else. Has anyone else done mountain climbing and seen views like this?
Just have to add some more depth with the rye, make the sky a bit darker and more dangerous-looking, and add in the main character (possibly my client’s father, in this case), on the cliff. Until then, here’s what it looks like right now!
Lots of surf art lately, and here is another piece to add to the collection! This is a custom-made, 8″ by 12″ mixed-media piece done on a Canson Illustration Board (a museum-quality paper). Below is the original photo, accompanied by 2 shots of the artwork!
This is a recently completed painting of surfer Arnie Smith hitting the waves in Maui, Hawaii! The painting is 8″ by 12″ and custom framed in a 12″ by 16″ black metal, archival-quality frame with UV glass protection, and an acid and lignin-free mat board! Thanks Jenny for giving me the opportunity to provide you and your husband with art for your home!
I recently turned this photo of baby Victoria with her visiting grandparents from Portugal into a portrait drawing that was given as a surprise gift to them. Mario, the grandfather, is also a talented artist. I’m glad they liked it and have some meaningful artwork to display in their home back in Portugal!
