In the subjective world of art, the most an artist can hope for is to be unique. Part of what sets Portland native Johnny Martin apart is who he chooses to paint. His works are a tribute to the world-famous painters who have blazed a path for all to follow.
When away from the easel, Mr. Martin spends his creative time as a vocalist, performing the swinging songs from the "Sinatra":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Sinatra era.
