Figurative Adult

Let me introduce myself

My name is Joe Godin and I am an artist oil painter. I paint portraits and figurative works. Doing so for over 50 years.

My process

In a perfect world you stop by my studio and express an interest in having a work done.

As the world has changed people working from home offices and so on.. so has my studio concept. As the majority of my Clients and Art Patrons “are not local”. I’ve come to relying on a few emails for discussion as to your end goals for the work.

As a client.. All conversations and source materials and your identity are strictly confidential!
