For over 10 years, members of PAPA would meet at Catalina Island, and spend the week before our exhibition, painting around the island. This group, created by Denise Burns, is what created the tremendous movement "en plein air". I offered to do all the ads to promote us, throughout the 10 years, and it became the major force behind the wonderful plein air movement that has occurred these past 20 years! Those first 10 years, so many artists were asking to be in the show, and couldn't get into the next years' guest list, so started their own group!! All the paintings that I do en plein air, are seldom ever touched up in the studio. (I know some artists that paint “en plein air”, then go to their studios and put almost as much time into the piece, as they spent on location. In my opinion, this is NO longer a plein air painting, it is a studio piece! Guess I am just a purist!!!) ... about the only thing I do in the studio, is sign it and frame it! This piece took HOURS...trying to understand, not only the wave action, but "the spaces between"!! Also, understanding the value pattern, as objects recede into the distance! AND at the same time, not allowing a shift in time, due to the sun’s movement!!!

Splendid work on the water.

beautifull seascape and colors
