I have a reverence for time and its continuous effect on all things. I am fascinated by the transformation and synthesis of our constantly changing world.
I strive to capture the details, while broadening my technique to create a more interpretive experience. Each view is a complex whole of interacting, interrelated and interdependent elements.
Plein Air painting challenges me to capture those fleeting moments… the glimmers, reflections, trains passing, birds in unison, drifting clouds and moving shadows from mountain top vistas to tidal sloughs. Each attempt results in new discoveries with a deeper connection to where I live and the world around me.
I have been painting Plein Air for the last 13 years and lead a group of Plein Air artists known as the East Bay Landscape Painters, painting at various locations throughout the East Bay.
If you would like to share a favorite location, I would also be happy to paint you a commissioned piece!
$200 unframed 11x15. $300 with exhibition frame 16x20. Free shipping.
Please contact me if you might be interested in purchasing any of my East Bay Views. Thank you!
