Painting outdoors has always been a part of my lifelong ambition. Finding scenes in nature has let my vision open to new vistas everywhere I look. The sky and the marshlands around me reveal new colors that one does not see in the studio. I make quick vibrant strokes of many colors that are integrated in my paintings. I now stretch to see how far one can push the palette of color and yet make the scene pleasing to view. Plein air is the only way I can achieve the needed vibrancy and spontaneity in my work.
