From 1992 - 2009
Oil Medium was my primary style before painting with watercolor....I studied oil portrait painting when my father died...I am a realistic painter with not much tolerance for many other genres, however I do have an appreciation and respect for a good abstract.
I painted this picture shortly after my father's passing....it helped me deal with my father's death...this picture was originally from their 50th Wedding Anniversary...Dad was 76....
Irene here was painted from the anniversary picture, however the painting wasn't produced until her 80th birthday.....Look'in good Ma!
My Best Friend--NFS
Teddy....what can I say for a man of very few words, although not afraid to speak his mind....this picture captures the true essence of his quiet stature....painted when he was 82 in the summer of '07...Love you Pal
Plein Air- Town Line Dairy Farm...$100
No longer a dairy farm, but a horse farm....painted onsite....
When I first began painting, I gave away my pictures to friends and family....when I paint, I am very selective of the subject matter to which I still am today...this one I am fond of
Jeremy & Minnie--SOLD
Rev. Michael P. Bafaro--SOLD
A Prayer for Al ...(oil original)--SOLD
