Brendan is a life-long painter and uses watercolor and acrylic as his primary medium. Although he studied architecture and cartooning for a time in college before joining the military, he is overall - a self taught artist.
Brendan's influences in painting began when he was just a child when his mother gave him a book of Picasso paintings. While Picasso remains his number one influence in painting, other influences include: Georges Seurat, Michelangelo, Salvador Dali and of course - God.
Below are selected paintings he's decided to share...some of which are reproduction paintings and some of which are his own created style. Enjoy and feel free to share!

A Brendan Flanagan original. I got the idea to paint Sugarloaf USA (The Mountain in Maine)
without the trails of snow. I imagined what it would look like, without the ski slopes, carved by men. This painting was done in High School Art Class in 1988.
