Sometimes when painting plein air the wind and bugs are so overwhelming
that by the end of a painting session I am incredibly underwhelmed by my
painting. I woke up this morning with the answer to my struggles. This
is my studio piece created from my day painting yucca at White Rock. Yucca Field Oil on canvas 10 x 10 inches
I enjoy painting our beautiful world and everything in it. I especially enjoy creating small daily paintings as a way to explore color and composition. I am initially attracted to a scene for its geometric relationships, rhythm or by a striking color contrast or harmony. I use strong imaginative color to create contemporary images. The interaction of color and composition evolves to describe the world as I see it.
