Frank Ordaz Studio - Commercial and Fine Art - Emmy Award Winning Illustrator - Oil Portrait - Star Wars
News! Frank Ordaz has a new Blog...   Its called "On Being Frank" and he posts daily. Please check it out.
Welcome to where compelling images will carry you away to the Amazonian Rain Forest, or Jerusalem at the time of Jesus or to a rural West Virginia Farm during the Great Depression. Whatever Frank paints, he paints in a direct realistic narrative style that challenges the viewer to experience the subject matter as if they were there. His people are alive and breathing and they are portrayed with sensitivity and light . Because most of his oil paintings are historical in subject matter, they are highly researched with attention given to the landscape, the people of the time as well as historically distinctive architectural elements.
