Early Paintings

Early works include urban landscape paintings, paintings of children, and art influenced by old masters such as Rembrandt, Titian, Vermeer, De Hooch, Hals, and other artists who prioritized meaning and interpretation over content or subject. The canvas immediately below is my version of a Rembrandt painting. It is absolutely my very first oil painting. There were no practice pieces. The artistic theme begun in these early oil paintings was then further explored on canvas in the works shown on the Street Scenes page.
