I am fascinated by the endless compositions that sunlight brings. I love painting outdoors (see the plein air section below my studio paintings) and find joy in bringing color and brushstrokes to many different subjects in the studio. I use oil paint mainly.

PLEIN AIR (outdoor paintings)

I explore with my mobile easel (mostly around Chico) and paint these on-site. I believe these have the greatest possibility of capturing some momentary real essence, something I hope to capture in my art.
