Artist Statement

“As a traditional painter I prefer my paintings to look timeless. I strive to give the viewer a sense of experiencing the place and the moment depicted in the scene I painted as though they were there. When painting portraits my goal is to create a good likeness and a painting that is pleasing on its own merit. However, I believe that a successful portrait painting is one that captures a bit of the subject’s character…the essence of the person.” - Jeff Morrow
