Born and raised in Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York surrounded by an artistic family of writers, musicians, architects, and the vast New York City art scene; Christopher B. Mooney received a B.F.A. degree from Parson’s School of Design.   Although he is best known for his wide angle paintings of Oregon's Bridges, he has also taken a closer view and paints the people who work on the bridges and on the river.  Recently he began to concentrate on portraiture, paintings of people without the industrial setting.  The goal of each portrait is to capture those individual expressions and moods that bring the subject's inner self to the surface.  His technique is that of the old masters, yet the paintings have a modern feel with contemporary settings, ambiance and boldness.  His portraits play with light and dark as well as hard and soft edges to recreate the three dimensional image on canvas. Mooney brings out the uniqueness of each subject, seeking to capture both their soul and personality. 

COMMISSION A PORTRAIT

Portrait commissions typically include 3 sittings of 2-3 hours each.  Reference photos are taken during the first visit in order to retain the details necessary to complete the portrait without the sitter being present. Paintings are in oil on canvas.
