Art and beauty is simply everywhere. Painting the landscape is my primary love, in every season. Exploration is so rewarding that new subjects, countries, brushstrokes and occasional abstraction are reflected in my work. I am an impressionistic painter, meaning one who captures the play of light, tone, color and atmosphere rather than details. I am primarily a studio painter, but will fight the bugs, wind, and sun to hone my skills of accurately seeing value, light and shadow, while emphasizing the focal point.
