Portraits

People are easily drawn into portraits; it is a genre that just about everyone can relate to. In addition to my interest representing the personality and character of the individual in my painting, I am also compelled with the tried and true approach to art making of painting. I find that I can communicate the messages I need to through that media while still presenting an important and unique addition to the current art world. My works are recognizable in shape and form as portraits, but I approach them by juxtaposing a wide variety of hard-edged colored geometric and organic shapes that form the very specific and important individual. I create the works I do simply because of my relationships with the individual. My portrait paintings are of my friends and family, people I enjoy surrounding myself with.

  2. Hi Frank
    Its nice to find a fellow portrait artist on the web – I love your paintings, you have a very special style that is strikingly different from the main stream styles. I’m still stuck in the past with my traditional charcoal sketches but I’m learning a lot from guys like you, just not brave enough to tackle something new.
    I’ll go brows your site – thanks

    Your portraits are SO awesome. Thank you for inspiring me to continue my art, no matter how busy I may or may not be with my summer and college coming up. I hope to be as experienced as you some day!
    Sincerely,
    Victoria Krueger, class of 2012 😀
