Portrait of New York State Assemblyman Michael Fitzpatrick

The English poet John Keats wrote “A thing of beauty is a joy forever, its loveliness increases, it will never pass into nothingness…”  Using centuries old techniques acquired during his classical training at the Charles Cecil Studios of Florence, Italy, Kevin McEvoy creates paintings with the craftsmanship of time honored tradition, works that will last for countless generations.



A portrait commission begins with a conversation between artist and client, after which the sitting takes place at the sitter’s home, or at the artist’s north light studio.  Portrait sitters typically describe a portrait posing session as being “as comfortable as a conversation.”

  1. You were a Good Samaritan to Susan’s father this week. Susan and I sing together and while we were driving home from practice last nite, she described the kindness, care and time you gave her lost and probably distressed father . You were his miracle.
    Thanks for reminding me that goodness still happens.
    Your paintings are warm and wonderful, so expressive.
    I enjoyed meeting you !
