"Sunsets are proof that endings can often be beautiful too." - Beau Taplin
Young to old with personality and character. Connecting with my clients is a joy and capturing their likeness and spirit is an invigorating challenge.
Having been inspired by the FL3TCH3R Exhibit hosted by East Tennessee State University, in 2015 I began a series of portraits that speak to serious social issues.
From the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of the Appalachian Mountain Range to across the globe and in your own back yard.
The artist and his painting, Elder Blessings.
As an artist, I am proud of this profession and conscious of its great heritage. I pledge myself to the maintaining of the dignity of this profession. I pledge that every painting that leaves my studio will represent my best effort as a creative artist and a craftsman. The painting I am working on now is the most important one of all to me, and I will spare no effort to make it the finest work of art of which I am capable. I pledge that I will employ only fine-quality materials and will take the traditional precautions to ensure the permanence of your painting. I am conscious that I am producing not only a painting but also an enduring work of art.
It has been said that man's best friend is his four legged companion. My love for dogs and cats and horses and most animals is evident in my animal portraits.
