Here is a great talent.
Patrick Kramer is a hyper-realistic painter from Utah, the U.S. He creates his art from photos and paints whatever captures his interest, be it from still lives, portraits, city scenes or landscapes. He is a perfectionist and has found art to be a great outlet for his slightly obsessive personality. He studied painting in college and experimented with hyper realism as a way of perfecting his craft. While he never intended to pursue the style, he found it hard to give up, as it suited his nature. A piece can take him anywhere from 1 to 6 weeks, about 50 to 300 hours, depending on the size and the complexity.
Clancy's comment: The paintings of glasses are exceptional.
