Hello everyone, I'm Derek of Baltimore. Realist artist, oil paint, mostly figurative, commissioned portraits. Full time with my art for two years now (still a newbie) Have a one man still life show sheduled at the end of this year so as I build inventory, they will be the genre that accumulates the quickest in my photos folder. My website is www.derekofbaltimore.com but it needs to be updated. I'm also on Myspace and Facebook, but I really hope this forum jumps off because I would really like to experience one that is artists only.
