A series of free vintage portraits.

A Voyage in Time is a free ebook available exclusively for all subscribers to my newsletter.

Since January, I have been painting one vintage portrait a week…well, to be honest, I did miss a week here or there!

In my collection of 21 vintage portraits, I have experimented with different styles and mediums.

Stories included in free ebook


As I paint, my mind wanders and I think about the people I am painting.

Was life kind to them? Did they love and were they loved back? What might have worried them?

I research and add tidbits of information about the historical period. So each portrait has a story inspired by the face that has appeared and those too will be included in this ebook.

I am in the final stages of revisions and the ebook will be published in a few days, in the June newsletter.
