I have been painting in oils since 2004. My teachers have been Brigitte Curt and Jim Smyth, to whom I am very grateful. I was a member of a coop gallery for many years and had many shows, but now I am entering a new and vast unknown territory, the web! 
I paint alla prima in plein-air. Sometimes I will use my plein-air sketches to paint another piece in the studio. Often I paint in the same location. I like that. I am not looking for the perfect place or the perfect moment. My paintings are somewhat truthful to what I am seeing, but more about how I am working that day, and at that moment. I try to make the surface as interesting as I can with color and brushstrokes.
