I have been called a"California Impressionist". I suppose this is because I paint with a bright palette. I love color and light. This is what I am about. Candid portraits, "In the Moment"; those are my portrait renditions. No stiff school smiles here. Just your family having fun. I am happy to take commissions for portraits of your pets as well. I work from "good" photos. NO school shots with toothy grins, please.
