Shoe Portraits
The shoes above are inspired by closets full of running shoes that have kept us on our feet through training and races.  If you have a pair or pairs of shoes that you would like to immortalize into a fantastic painting close to your heart, let me know and we can make that happen. 
It is a great way to save the shoes without all the clutter and smell!

Family Shoes, Oil on Canvas, 12 x 36," Commission

This family walked their first 1/2 marathon and these were the shoes that helped then finish with great success!  Fantastic memories have been preserved and a fabulous original painting now hangs in their home.

 

Running Portraits
Often times runners have a favorite place to run or a scene that remains in their memory for a particular reason.  These scenes, as well as a stylized image of the runner can be preserved in an heirloom oil painting to admire provoke great memories for a lifetime.

Take a peek at the process used to create these original paintings.

I create a template that masks the background so I can add texture to my runners. Next, I add a solid acrylic wash of color to seal the background canvas and runners. Then, I mix 4-5 different shades of the background oil paint color, in this case red, and add the interesting background.

 

Finally, I paint the silhouettes of the runners with a very dark color.
