Traveling and painting are my two favorite things, and they go great together! In the past year, I've visited and painted in California, Key West, Madrid, Santa Fe, the Adirondacks and more. I've recently relocated from upstate New York to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and love exploring the beaches and the low country.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
A plein air outing on the Erie Canal.
Although I often paint on location, this was the first time I packed everything on my bike and headed out to paint. It was a great afternoon and a successful experiment.
Painting allows me to combine the joy of making things with the appreciation of the beauty of the world. I love the process of engaging with a subject - an abandoned barn, a still life, or the beaches of South Carolina. I seek to capture the energy of a place or a scene in colorful oils.
I paint with brushes, palette knives and other things - razor blades, sponges - really anything that holds paint is fair game. Trying new things is always part of the fun. I like to paint in plein air (on location), as spending time in a place allows me to really observe. I look to capture things like light and color in a small study that I can take back to my studio, and use these studies to inform larger works.
