Jonathan Queen

Jonathan Queen blew me away with his realism paintings last week when he visited my school.  All of his paintings revolve around the subject matter of antique toys, and his skill is remarkable.  These paintings look like photographs.. I am so Jelo (Green Jelo)

"Antiques, vintage objects, wooden boxes, and photos are the props I use to set the stage of my narrative paintings. Toys in the right setting become complex characters with a deeper story to tell. My influences come from classical painting, nature, literature, my family and my faith." (Jonathan Queen)

Here are some of my Favorites
