The women in his paintings are absolutely still but I always feel like the leaves are moving. He has such hushed energy in his paintings that seperates from other photorealists. He is definitely not boring.

I think he is photo shopping the figures into the scene and painting on top of a photo. why else would he use shellac?

In order to get the full effect you have to go to his website. Simply stunning art, and I had fun with the "Alter Light" button. Beautiful.

this looks so much like a photograph, it's unreal.
I love how she seems to be wandering into the brush in the first one. It makes you wonder about it.
