Oil Portraits by Jan Way

Dallas Fort Worth Oil Portrait Artist

                                   Artist Statement

 My goal as an artist is to create images that will last well beyond our lifetime.  An oil portrait is a documentation of the dignity, grace, and individuality of the subject.  It is a statement that this person is someone important and that they have brought something special into this world.  I want to portray that essence of a person.  I want to capture it and preserve it for posterity. If I can show the viewer an inkling of the soul, then I have achieved my purpose.  Painting portraits is my passion!
