I choose to paint controversial characters who are known for their complicated — and sometimes negative — reputations. They are all people of consequence whether they be saints or scoundrels. I am attempting to capture a bit of personality in these portraits, maybe it’s not their true personality but it might make people think about them a little differently.
From Frida Kahlo, to U.S. Presidents, to the notorious RBG, dozens of my portraits can be viewed at rdkart.blogspot.com and may be purchased at this secure website
