Portrait Gallery

Stories

The portraits in this gallery represent some of the people that Dominic met in Petaluma, California many years ago. They fascinated him because of their character, personality, life experiences and cultural backgrounds.

"It was each person's unique difference, speaking to the atmosphere and make-up of the small town of Petaluma, that motivated me to paint their portrait."
