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.
