About the Book
This is a 21 year record of my finished portraits and study portraits in oil. I have included a short summary of what I have learned about painting oil portraits and a series of photos showing the finished portrait process and the quick study process.
ILLUSTRATION 1976-1996 During these years Myron created hundreds of illustrations for magazines, books, greeting cards, university sports programs, and advertising accounts. TEACHING 1985-2013 Myron taught drawing, painting and illustration in the Communication Art and Design department at the Alexandria Technical and Community College. PAINTING 1990-PRESENT Myron paints commissioned portraits in his studio or in the client’s home and has done many public portrait demonstrations. He has studied portrait painting with these excellent artists: Pat Jerde, Richard Whitney, Casey Baugh, Bonita Roberts, and John Howard Sanden. I am grateful for the unique and personal influence each of these artists have had on my thinking and my skills as an artist. CURRENT WORK I am planning a new series of paintings including landscapes, still life and figurative works to develop a looser style of painting in oil.
