This was a private commission to create my version of beauty and the Beast set in a library.
The original painting is oil on panel and measure 24" x 32".
My work revolves around the fantasy genre. I am very passionate about painting, especially the figure. I run a monthly costumed figure drawing session in Chicago. I am inspired by the great illustrators of today and the masters of our past. Thankfully those same masters shared the same delight in painting fantastic scenes out of our myths and legends. As much as I like to work with oils, I am just as intrigued by the digital mediums, much like the world was fascinated with the dawn of photography.
