Oil On Canvas Portrait
University Professor Portrait: 20" x 24"
After studying all the photos, I got the impression that Professor McKeegan was a dynamic bright lively character who cared about his students, expressed his own opinions without offending and had amazing charisma and charm. He looked very distinguished yet he had that mischievous twinkle in his eye and warm genuine smile that defined his remarkable personality. His hair is fantastic in one of the reference photos I used for this portrait and gives him that look of Albert Einstein brilliance that I felt would distinguish his portrait from the rest and leave a memorable impression.
I wanted my unconventional portrait style to convey his extraordinary character, personality and individuality. I hope you find that my vibrant contemporary style adds life to this memorial portrait and stands out from the rigid stoic portraits one normally finds in a university portrait gallery.

|RED SKY IN THE MORNING|
Prints are available as art prints, canvas prints, acrylic prints,metal prints and art cards.
I took many photos of Canada's famous schooner Bluenose II as she was docked in Lunenburg Harbour, Nova Scotia in February of 1989; however, none of the photos seemed to have the angle or light to inspire me to paint this beautiful tall ship. A year or two later in the summer, it was among many of the tall ships came to Toronto Harbour where I took more photos but the day was dull and light was not what I was looking for. I painted this painting of Bluenose II in April 2015 using one of my Toronto Harbour photos as reference; however, I painted the Atlantic ocean sunrise background and misty morning foreground from my imagination. This meant I had to adjust the light on the boat to suit the light source in my painting. The light in my photo was ordinary dull daylight from above. The light in my painting comes from the low sun on the horizon and its reflections in clouds and water which meant that the light on the ship would have to come from below. The light on this ship is based on my experience and painted entirely from my imagination.

TOUR DE FORCE
The"flying" colors of this Tour de France watercolor painting appear to trace the path where the racers had been moments earlier and give the impression of wind and speed. The blurred colors coming off the clothing of the racers give the feeling of urgency and movement. My technique of painting realistic figures against an impressionist background is intended to make you feel like part of the race, not just a spectator.
The original watercolor painting is 22" x 30" framed to museum quality standards to inside frame size of 32" x 40". To check on the availability of the original painting, please contact.
