the story in this painting

the creation of this painting

Original artworks produced by the Artists of Al Young Studios are part of themed collections because the Studios is organized after the pattern of the Renaissance workshops of the old masters.  The Artists take the long view of their work as being a lifetime journey toward mastery of artistic expression through selected techniques, reaching as far back as the 16th century.  Artists work as peers in an intensely creative community in which each artist pursues his or her own work as part of the group's philosophy.

Subject-matter research; fabrication and acquisition of such things as costuming, props, accessories; use of models; photography; framing and other in-house Studios services support the work of the Artists.  Artworks are also produced within a strong tradition of curatorial documentation.

The work of the Studios has been ongoing since 1981. The following links present some of the projects we've done and a few of the things we've invented and learned.
