Landscapes and Plein Air
My environment has always had a profound impact on my artwork. When painting outdoors, I become fully engulfed in my constantly changing surroundings. In my attempt to capture the essence of the moment, my painting often takes on an unexpected and fresh immediacy with brushstrokes that are impulsive interpretations of my environment's subtleties in tones, colors, shapes, balance and movement. My heightened awareness when painting outdoors provides me with a feeling of connection to my environment.
