Representational Realism in Oil Painting


Third-generation oil painter Joseph Alexander lives with his husband, globally renowned information security expert John Alexander, and their German Shepherd Dog, locally renowned professional shedder Eljay (Princess Poochiepie). The Alexanders live in the rolling hills of southeastern Minnesota, surrounded by people, nature, and a landscape that provide endless inspiration for Joseph's work. Joseph paints in oils using classic methods to produce delightful interplay between light, shadow, and color.

Joseph's artistic background includes painting for several years with classical master painter Dan Petrov. Subsequently, Joseph underwent training with the celebrated illustrator and portrait painter Kevin Murphy in Kevin's unparalleled Evolve curriculum.
