Painting of the Day

I started this web page on January 21, 2012. It was actually a new-year resolution. I have seen several similar web pages, and since I have been interested in art for a long time, I figured it would be fun to create and maintain my own site. The paintings shown on this page simply reflect my personal taste, and are not meant to cover all artistic styles and currents. As you shall see, I especially like portraits.
