Original Artwork, Paintings, and Portraits

by Skip Van Lenten

Welcome to my site for artwork, paintings, and portraits. I am a part-time artist, writer, and musician. I paint in the traditional style of artists, using oil paints on canvas, and do most of my portraits from photos or attachments. I am beginning to do still-life paintings, and plein air landscapes, but my primary love is trying to capture the essence of a person or animal in my portraits. My stories have appeared in a local paper, and I have included a link to many of them below. Music is a language in itself, and I will post some of my more recent songs when I am able to include them on this site.
