Featured raffle: 4X3 canvas painting  

    Painting by Tony Portillo

    Painter, musician, graphic artist by trade and all around creative guy. I've always modeled myself as a Renaissance man thinking out of the box is what I do best and am proud to say "I LOVE IT".

    My heroes, are Pablo Picasso , Vincent van Gogh, Salvador Dali on the wild side and Michelangelo, Alberto Vargas, Patrick Nagel, Frida Kahlo, and Georgia O'keeffe because of their use of color and their knowledge of the Golden Mean.

    Growing up in San Francisco, there was always something creative happening. I exceeded in all my art classes as far as I can remember, in college I was not able to get enough taking all the art classes I could. The Airbrush came easy to me and was able to create some of my best work and continue to use it to date.

    Moving to San Jose in the late 70 and finding a computer I exceeded to draw, but now in a digital form these day they call me a Visual Designer / Graphic Artist most of the work I do now is on a PC. I've never stopped painting creating about 4-5 commission painting a year. Valentine seems to be the busy time with the heart paintings.

    I hope you enjoy the painting I created for this event and hope to meet you them.

    Ciao!
    Tony Portillo
