I sometime take photos and then paint the scene, many times adding subjects from memory. I like for my paintings to be as realistic as possible down to the most intimate detail.My oil paintings have won several awards over the years but nothing equals the simple pleasure of creating a finished painting from Gods own pallet.I enjoy doing commissioned paintings...seeing the ideas of someone else come to life on canvas brings joy to my heart. If you have a photoI believe a good painting tells a story and I look forward to telling your story on canvas.I thank you for your interest.Al Johannessen
