Because of what I see and the emotions I feel when I am painting in on the shoreline of a local river, in a garden, or beside a group of Holstein yearlings, my paintings are alive with color and energy. I paint each day immersed in the light and atmosphere of the day, feeling the tradition of America's plein air masters close behind me. (Would that they would stand a little closer...) There is simply no way to describe the intense experience and connection that occurs when painting from nature.
