Painting a portrait can take years, but artist Tim Decker can do it a lot faster.

Decker, a performance speed painter, now lives in Tampa, Fla., but he is originally from Brodheadsville, Monroe Co.

Decker paints celebrity and patriotic portraits, everyone from Ray Charles to the Statue of Liberty, and he does it all in just a few minutes.

Decker joined 69 News in the studio for a demonstration Wednesday morning. He's back in the area for a live performance at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, Monroe Co., on Friday.
