One of my favorite childhood memories was the smell of turpentine and watching my grandmother blend the colors on her pallette.
I was hooked and have been painting every since.
For the last 20 years I have enjoyed creating bold paintings, including portaits is several mediums.
As most people are not aware, portrait painting is become increasingly digital, being copied by a computer. A process by which your image is scanned into a computer and sprayed onto a canvas. The sellers of such "portraits" claim that these are "real paintings".
While digital portraits are an inexpensive piece of art, they lack dimension, natural brush strocks, rich color and detail. Digital technology doesn’t bring out the same quality as hand painted portraits.
A quality genuine artist rendered piece of art is more likley to increase in value and maintain it's integrity over the years and decades to come.
Computer generated prints tend to lose their value in the market over time.
I use high quality oils and acrylics in my works to get the best dimension and color.
Family portraits provide wonderful memories and legacy.

"I had the honor of first stumbling across the Civil War paintings of artist Laura Kerr Marrs on eBay in 2003. Her original oil paintings of Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), Robert E. Lee (1807-1870), Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson (1824 - 1863), J.E.B. Stuart (1833-1864), Nathan Bedford Forrest (1821-1877), and Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain (1828-1914) just blew me away.
After purchasing her painting of Lincoln, I quickly added the other five paintings to my collection."

Uploaded images lose detail. The paintings presented are much bolder with greater detail that depicted.
I also paint the occasional landmark and landscapes. Prints and originals are avialable for purchase.
