I love to computer enhance my photographs to make them look more like a paintings.

I do portrait commissions, and will do a beautiful, heirloom portrait from your favorite photo in an oil or acrylic painting, or a graphite drawing of your loved ones , home, favorite vacation or??? Please just email me at: [email protected] for more info.

I deeply regret to inform you that the "World's Favorite Clown" Emmett Kelly, Jr. passed away on November 29, 2006! The world has lost a very special friend and he gave millions of people a smile in their hearts for 45 years. We will miss him and I am very honored to have known him and to be allowed to help keep his memory alive through my artwork.
