-—The Kirk Reeves mural—-
In July, I painted a 10 by 38 foot mural of Kirk Reeves, the street performer who passed away in 2012. The piece is on NE Grand at Lloyd in Portland, Oregon, and it was featured on KOIN and KGW as well as in this video, which filmmaker Ifanyi Bell created for Oregon Public Broadcasting.

-—Portraying people—-
I may have been painting portraits for over a decade now, but it never gets old. Humans are endlessly fascinating, and the subject of the portrait pictured here is no exception! For more about her, check out the 2010 Oregon Art Beat segment about my process that also features part of the interview I did with Poison’s alter ego, Kevin.

-—Being a proper patron of the arts—-
The Willamette Week says that having your portrait done by me is de rigueur for Portlanders, and who am I to argue? For more about commissioning me, go here.
