As a representational painter, I wish to convey sensory perceptions I observe from a subject that has caught my eye, just as a musician tries to interpret the feel of a piece of music.  It can be light, color, contrast or the sense of space, that grabs my attention.  The subject can be something from our everyday surroundings that may go unnoticed or a pattern of contrast found in an intimate setting.  
I enjoy being outdoors in nature and have redirected my primary interest to plein air painting, simply outdoor painting, using alla prima a wet-on-wet painting technique.  This led me to change from acrylic to oil paints, allowing me more freedom to blend the layers of paint, to build surfaces and explore color subtleties. Also, I don’t lose my image if it starts to rain.  The smaller plein air sketches are usually completed in a couple of hours do to changing light conditions.  If needed, I do final touches back in the studio.  The sketches sometime will influence larger studio paintings.
