Art, Ideas and News. I am a painter, sculptor and printmaker.
Looking towards an uncertain future. A portrait of Richard Burton. 2014.  Just missing the final touches on this portrait of a dear friend.  I have painted many pictures of Richard over the 20 years that I have known him and I believe this one to be the most representative of who he really is.   

This picture is an honest admiring look into Richard’s universal psychological state. 

Thank you my friend.

Ludovisi Ares
A Roman marble copy from a 4th century BC Greek original. The sculpture was found from Campus Martius and it’s possibly one of the cult statues of Mars, whose temple was located in this area. It became a part of cardinal Ludovisi’s collection and hence the name.
Palazzo Altemps, Rome.
(quality could be better but unfortunately there was too much counter light)
