Artist Statement: Painting the landscape directly from life (en plein air) lets me capture the unique beauty of a place and time. The ever changing colors of our dynamic coastline or farmlands inspire me to paint. I set out to capture the sights, sounds and feeling of the scene in front of me. Back in my studio I give my paintings a second look, complete the work, and sometimes use it as reference for larger studio paintings.
