Dominic Green PhD wrote this article for Art New England featuring three artists who paint in the classical realism style. Dominic has a very sensitive understanding of the nuance of challenges that come with painting in a “traditional” style. I really enjoyed speaking with him….

I have had several requests for more moderately priced paintings. So, I have placed six paintings on ebay. It is “auction” style with a “buy it now” button. These have very accessible pricing.

I have been notified that two of my paintings (Lovers and My Guide) are finalists. There were over 7,500 entries! These paintings are currently available at Tree’s Place Gallery on Cape Cod, MA.
My painting, Whirl, is on loan at the Boston office of Brown Brothers Harriman.
BBH is the oldest privately owned banking institution in the US. Their Boston office has 2000 employees!
I find it a real honor when someone entrusts me to do a portrait, but especially a posthumous portrait. People that knew the person tell me about them, try to relate to me how they feel about them, what the person means to them, the impression the person left them with. It is a very special experience.
Testing posting blog from my phone!
This is a testimonial from a happy client…and when the client is happy, I am happy (big smile)
Would you recommend Dana Levin, and if so, why?
“Yes, for two reasons. First the proficiency, the aesthetic which is apparent in the artist’s portfolio. But, beyond that, there’s something else. I’m not sure if empathy is the right word, but Dana demonstrated a compassion to understand who Blanche was. I think she took that part of the process very seriously. Like a biographer, if an artist doesn’t understand the spirit of a subject, then the work is lifeless, just the record, the facts or a description. This is more than that: when I look at this portrait I don’t just recognize those eyes, I know the look in those eyes. This is Blanche.”

I have been watching the Women Painting Women exhibitions since they began in 2010 and am honored to be included. The show opens September 5th- 125 Meeting Street, Charleston, SC.
Here is the finished portrait painting commission of Anne Rosenfield. Working with her and her husband Noah has been so wonderful. “Wonderful” is a total understatement.
