Portrait Sketch of Governor Malloy

        Portrait sketch of Governor Dannel Malloy

In between  my portrait commissions I am inspired to paint  special individuals and leaders. I recently created a 16 x 20 oil on linen portrait sketch of  Stamford, Connecticut native, Governor Dannel Malloy.  

 

 


My family has lived in Connecticut since the late 1600's and early 1700's, so I consider myself a true Connecticut Yankee and living of Mark Twain's property, the author of "The Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" this makes it especially relevant. I am a self trained artist and have been painting portraits for over 30 years. Portraiture is a demanding challenge and a life's dedication, but in the end the reward is that you have given immortality and honor to a unique spirit for generations to come.
