PLEIN AIR IMPRESSIONS

I love painting outdoors – soaking up the patterns, colors, rhythms, and textures of the natural world.  These “plein air” watercolors and my lifelong experiences in nature often provide the genesis for more abstract paintings.  Rendering a quick impression allows me to simplify the composition and convey the essence of my inspiration. The whims of the environment – sun, wind, rain, insects – provide the impetus for me to complete a painting quickly, and focus on what attracted me to the subject in the first place. Once, I asked a buyer of one of my paintings if he knew the location suggested.  He didn’t know, but said, “It looks like someplace I’d like to be.”  That’s the feeling conveyed in my work.
