About the Artist
My name is Bruce Durst. In real life, I made a living in the oil industry but for over two decades I would work at night once a week in the studio of Efim Frumin, a distinguished Russian refugee Artist who was trained in classical art the St. Petersburg Art Academy in the Soviet Union. I learned by copying the old masters. I thoroughly enjoy capturing a likeness and a tender moment. Let me paint or draw a special portrait for you.
A simple 11" x 14" portrait of the head and shoulder will run about $350 plus tax. A simple 11" x 14" ink drawing of the head will run about $150. A Larger and more complicated paintings will have to negotiated.
