This week I uploaded some of my paintings to various Art portals, and was pleasantly surprised by the flow of positive responses to my work.

This Oil on canvas painting, entitled “I hear You My Brother,” depicting a very good friend of mine; the picture was discovered one evening when we were looking through his old photo albums and I knew this picture just had to become a painting! It speaks volumes in its simplicity…
