Nick Evans Family Portrait

Portraits

These are paintings I have made of people, pets, friends or family. These Commissioned portraits were made for others to enjoy.  There is a real luxury of having a painting of yourself made, or having one made of someone you love. You cannot underestimate the pride you will feel hanging this kind of art in your home.

Mention Nostri

Trompe L'Oeil

 This type of painting includes a visual illusion. It literally means "to fool the eye" into perceiving a painted detail as a three-dimensional object. These paintings are creative and fun. They often include paintings within the painting, and interconnected references.

Warm and Naturalistic Paintings 

 

As Ophelia said in the play Hamlet, we like portraits because they are "remembrances." Why artists like portraits is that it gives one an opportunity to play with color, light, and harmony. The interaction between the artist and the viewer is a magical place where the intentions of both participants merge into something new altogether. 

What a painting seeks to do is make a profound connection with the viewer, by continually revealing something new with its whimsical or often poignant passages. Unlike a photograph, you should be continuously surprised by a painting. 

 

 

Interested in purchasing your very own RAC original? 

 

From time to time people are interested in what works are currently available for purchase. It is always difficult for an artist to part with his original paintings, as each creation takes on it's own kind of life force, and in some way is a part of your very consciousness. 

I trust that each painting will find it's way into the home and heart of someone who will love it as much as I do.
