Read a bit about Michael, from his website:

Michael Naples is an artist from Wheaton, IL (Chicagoland). He earned his BFA degree from the American Academy of Art in Chicago. In 2001 he was accepted into the Society of Illustrators and published in their annual.

For the next decade he filled his time doing various illustration jobs, murals, and many, many commissioned portraits for people all over the US. But it wasn’t until a chance encounter with an article about Daily Painting that he found his passion for oils. He began his own Daily Painting Project in August 2006 and hasn’t lost a bit of momentum.

Michael has won several awards and had numerous articles published about his paintings. These Daily Paintings have been purchased by collectors all over the world including Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Great Britain, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Sweden and every state in the US.

When Michael is not behind the easel, he enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and 3 daughters.
