This is Extraordinary. I love your work. Photorealism is my favorite genre or discipline, I feel that you have certainly mastered the art form. This portrait of Louise Brooks is simply stunning.

SUPERBE. Mais je préfère le portrait serré parce que l'expression n'est pas diluée par le décor.
J'ADORE.

That looks like a digital composite. It's hard to imagine that is a painting. I would love to see your work in person, as it must have extraordinary depth.

A lovely portrait of a fascinating character. Fearless, she defied studio heads, personified the most creative decade of the last century, created a style that compels to this day, performed one of the finest pieces of acting in film history with 'Pandor's Box', almost drank herself into oblivion and recreated herself as a perceptive critic and essayist of the medium which threw her out with the garbage. Truly splendid.

Absolutely amazing! Can I ask, what sort of mediums do you mix into the oil as you paint? I'm wondering how you make the paintings just pop out! Also, how long does it take you to complete a painting of this size? Thanks!
