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.

“I AM SELLING THIS ORIGINAL TO THE PERSON THAT PRESENTS ME WITH THE BEST OFFER I RECIVE”
“This is a portrait of the woman I fell in love with over six years ago and have been engaged to over the past four years. Last year at this time was the last time we saw each other due to a disagreement. I waited a year to see if she would call and apologize for the things she had said and had done, but nothing ever came.
I have always been in love with her and painted this piece with all my heart and soul as she meant so much to me, It was unveiled to the public for the first time last year in Chicago at Navy Pier and is now for the first time available to be purchased. Up to this point I did not want to part with it and wanted it to hang above our bed, but, after this past year and the four seasons that came and went in pain, I cannot bear to look at this painting any longer or have it in my possession I have looked at it every day since it was painted and now and as I said can’t look upon it anymore. I wanted to destroy it and to be rid of all the pain but I was asked by friends to please not destroy it and to sell it instead. To me, I said “it is priceless” and I know to someone else, it does not have the same value due to the sentimental value It holds for me. So I am selling it to the person that sends me a bonafide offer above and beyond my costs for the Belgian Linin, the wood stretchers, oil paint, and the museum-quality triple wood frame, all which total $1200 to recoupe my material costs. I will take the largest amount that I am offered for this piece as I have two surgeries coming up and will not be able to work and for a couple months and with monthly bills, on the horizon, this will help. Buyer will be responsible for the shipping costs. If this painting is purchased from someone in Wisconsin the buyer will be responsible for applicable sales taxes and all the regular “Terms and Conditions” apply upon purchasing this painting. Thank you, Brad

The largest painting to date by Brad on the subject of Eve. Brad had built an elaborate 10 ft x 10 ft x 10 ft metal structure made out of steel tubing with a platform at the top where he could visually see what God would have been seeing when he created Eve. The structured was all draped in heavy black fabric to block the light from entering the space. The space had its own controlled lighting that shined down on his model as well as the many plants.

Brad could not help himself when presented with the opportunity for a laugh. And that is just what he has gotten from those that looked upon this early work by the artist.
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".
