Ready to Hang

Just as my landscape paintings are of the region in which I live, many of my portraits are of the people of the American Southwest, some of them still living traditional lifestyles.

This painting features young girl practicing the hoop dance. Colors include earth colors, lapis lazuli, and natural turquoise, to reflect the colors of the American Southwest. The piece is finished with a traditional varnish, and the sides of the canvas are painted a neutral earth color.

My name is L. Lawrence Bispo. I am a Vango artist who paints landscapes, portraits, and still lifes. I also at times teach portrait painting, figure drawing, observational drawing, and color theory. In addition to painting and drawing, I also write, compose music, and develop for the web. I always have a lot of sticks in the fire! For my day job, I teach (and sometimes do) web development. I also love spending time with my family: my beautiful wife Joy and our crazy dog Fiona. Thank you for visiting my portfolio!
