THE PAINTSLINGER

Published March 31, 2008

I have mentioned elsewhere on this site that, in addition to being a writer, I am also an artist. The Paintslinger, if you will. Well … allow me to prove it.

I don’t paint as much as I used to — given a choice between writing and painting, I will choose writing every time. It’s all the same to me, I can paint a picture with brush and canvas, or words and keyboard. When I do paint, however, I specialize in portraits. Celebrity portraits. I know … shocker.

Below, I am posting a dozen or so photos paintings done between 1986 and 2001. Most are approximately 24” x 36”, done in monochromatic acrylic (mainly blue and white). I may put up more in the future, depending what kind of response I get. I also have quite a few pencil portraits, which I might post as well, under the heading (what else?) … The Leadslinger.

Those interested in commissioning any work, are encouraged to contact me.

Enjoy the show.
