#tbt live painting


 #TBT to a live worship painting I did at @liquidchurch this past year. There's an energy and excitement that comes from the unpredictable nature of painting live that is unlike anything else. Hoping 2017 holds opportunity to do more live art. Photo cred: @jay.loden #painting #artist #painter #worship #livepainting #art #originalart #creative #fineart #church #event

Portrait of Emily

I had the privilege of creating this portrait of Emily as a Christmas present for Ryan's wife. Unfortunately, the surprise got leaked but she loved it!


Here's what Ryan had to say "I have been a fan of Mike's work for a long time and after our Christmas shoot with our daughter Emily I felt like I had the perfect picture to be made into a portrait in his amazing style. While I spilled the beans on the Christmas present early, my wife loves the portrait. Mike was able to capture both the physical details of Emily, but also her joyful disposition. We are thrilled to have this keepsake marking Emily's first birthday and second Christmas".
