Dave has been a highly sought after portrait artist for over 35 years and is well known for his series"A Different Kind of Family Portrait". His acrylic paintings on canvas are created in a semi traditional painterly style. He paints from the client's own casual snapshots, which he feels reveal much more personality than set up photos.
NO LIVE SITTINGS!
Mixed Media StoreStore
Dave's Mixed Media pieces on paper are created using unorthodox tools... such as cauliflower, rollers, the wrong side of a brush, fingernails, used rags, discarded worn out brushes, graphite, ink, colored pencils, markers, sandpaper and anything else that is not nailed down in his studio. The results are unpredictable and a bit outrageous.
His themes are whatever confounds confuses or amuses him on that particular day, combined with a curious cluster of recurrent images. His cast of characters are anti-portraits, probing the boundaries of an anatomically recognizable face.

These are hand-painted, original acrylic paintings on canvas. I use YOUR favorite photo of your pet and create a beautiful portrait. Once I have a usable photo of your pet, it takes about a month to complete (less if you are on a deadline....ask me!) 25% down, balance when you see it and LOVE IT!
