Traveling with Walter Bartman on his international painting workshops introduced me to the joy of painting.  My imagination responded to his challenge to study light, color, and design in the landscape. 
Nearly 25 years ago, I met Walt and artists from the Yellow Barn Studio and Gallery (Glen Echo Park, Maryland) as a participant in Walt’s workshop to Southern France.    I was merely a photographer-observer of the Provence countryside and the many artists on that trip.  I had never painted.  I was a government economist on vacation.  I loved to travel and relished immersion in the countryside, towns, and cities afforded by tagging along with artists.  The Provence trip in 1997 led to dozens more trips and eventually to regular art classes with Walt.
In 2003, my semi-retirement from a career as a research economist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) afforded me the time to pursue painting rigorously in Walt’s Painting Landscapes on Location classes at the Yellow Barn and workshops. With wonderful surprise, I found that plein air painting enriched my travel experience far beyond what my camera could.  His local classes introduced me to the beauty and variety of the Maryland landscape.
I work in oil and in gouache.  My work is representational but expressionistic, seeking to capture the feeling of the landscape.  Plein-air experience includes a dozen years in classes plus more than twenty workshops with Walt in Maine, Big Sur, the Bahamas, Sicily, Prague and Budapest, Mallorca, Santorini (twice), Florence, Ireland, Mexico, Argentina, France, Cuba (twice) and the Italian Lakes, as well as Tilghman Island.  I take advantage of local workshops by other Maryland artists and enjoy participating in a variety of plein-air paint-outs such as the Frederick County Barnstormers (annual), the Yellow Barn Green Paint-Out, and the Kensington Labor Day Art Show (annual).  [...]
