Portrait Gallery I

 

In this gallery you will find many of Brads portrait pieces. Works that range in many subject matters. It is a glance into the eyes of the people this artist has painted over his long distinguished career. There are literately hundreds of paintings and drawing that Brad has done over his career that were given away, sold, stolen or lost. 

Unfortunately, many of Brads early works were never photographed.   What we do have will be shown on this site and we continue to update the website on a regular bases with images that continue to be found. For more portrait works by Brad, visit the "Portrait Gallery II" on our website.

The structured was all draped in heavy black fabric to block the light from entering the space.

The Tennis Angel

 

Painted in 2008  /  Medium: Oil on Canvas  /  Image Size: 5"h x 7"w

Brad over the years has always set aside anything he was working on to help his three children with their class projects. Brad who almost always worked on paintings to the wee hours of the morning still found time to paint special little piece like this one titled "The Tennis Angel" for his daughter Haley, who was having a very difficult time with her tennis lesson through the local recreation department. She would sometimes come home in tears stating to her dad that she was no good at tennis. Her dad gave her this painting the next morning and said to her..."Just a little something to always remind you Haley".
