Eyes of the Soul Portraits are my unique way of capturing the essence of my subjects soul. These portraits are slightly surreal, with the body painted in a long, slender style. Putting strong emphasis on the eyes, enlarging them as a way to express one's inner beauty. These portraits feature rich detail of the subject's hair and clothing.
Portraits can be created as small as a 12" X 24" or up to 18" X 36". Subjects can be featured from the head to shoulders or all the way down to the waist depending on the size of the canvas.
Portraits may also feature two or more people and they can be intertwined with some background on a 24" X 30" canvas or up to a 24" X 36" canvas.
Traditional Portraits can also be created as true-to-life with one or more people.
