Fresco Painter Jack Portland

Jack Portland studied art at the Portland Museum School under such notable artists as Louie Bunce and Mike Russo. His love of drawing and water color led to an interest in fresco painting. Jack studied fresco painting in Rome and now spends half of each year there painting large frescoes. He spends the other half of the year in Portland doing smaller oils and watercolors. Jack’s paintings can be seen at the Laura Russo Gallery in Portland.
