'Plein Air Painting is a metaphysical skill capable of creating an image that lets the viewer 'Be there in the moment' when viewing the painting.'
I' ve discarded the comfort of the studio and painting from photographs, in order to be involved with all five senses, getting the essence of a scene down on the canvas, creating from nature, the best of all teachers, with the truest of all colors...
Painting from Life.
I have spent the last 30+ years with one simple focus - attempting to capture the fleeting light as it defines a shape, creates a mood or connects to the familiar, and pass that 'never to be again' moment onto to you, the viewer.

Some efforts are monumental in subject matter because of the very nature of the subject but, most are everyday 'moments'.
