Portrait of Nick Maestri Oil on Prepared Panel 13x10in 2005.jpg

Oil on Prepared Panel, 13 x 10”. One of my favorite oil portraits of a young man on the threshold of manhood. The intimate scale, the palette with the beautiful smalt blue in the background, the feeling and reality of the slight beard growth, the simplicity of clothing and directness of gaze all converged with my years of study to create an extraordinary work of art.
