Sculpture and Painting

Fern's portrait is finished and on its way to being installed in a beautiful hand made oak door.

Portrait by Patrick Gracewood ©2012
Mark Downing asked me to paint a portrait of his wife, Fern, in the art nouveau style of Mucha. The more I researched Mucha, the more intimitaded I got. The man was a master draughtsman and colorist. It says a lot that Mark made the intire door before I started painting.............

Go to Mark Downing's Atelier to see pictures of how he made the door.
