Here is a commission that Jerald recently completed of a young man and his dog. This large 30x40 oil painting will be treasured for generations to come in this family. This is a good example of how Jerald likes to paint a portrait. He likes to pose the subject doing what he loves best, in this case, fishing. We chose a frame build out of hacienda beams. If you are interested in commissioning us to paint a portrait, take a look at our "portraits" page on the website: www.watercolorbarn.com. Give Molly a call to discuss what you want. 918-810-3615. He paints portraits in both oil and watercolor.
