“Only in the making can things happen, It doesn’t really matter that much what the making is. It just matters that you make something.” – Michael Atavar

After a while of doing very little creatively, I decided to start at the same place I had once begun, portrait painting.

This is a painting of an image my photographer friend Joseph Brotherton took of himself.

The quality and clarity of the image enabled me to create a highly detailed painting, which I feel captures life and his character.
