This digital painting is done by the Painter software with a wacom tablet, an electronic pen. No photo reference, only imagination. I painted what I wanted to see. It is digital, but it is 100% hand work… each stroke is done by my hand. I like this new way of painting.

O'hara's Pub

O'hara's Pub is very popular for its Jazz music on Las Olas Blvd in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Now it is history. This building is going to be torn down and in this spot, a new taller building will be constructed.

Today I finished this couple's portrait. A black young lady wanted the original. I scanned it, made some corrections using Photoshop. I like it. This is the moment the President-Elect won the election on election night with his wife, Michelle.
