It is the emotional connection to the scene that draws me in. I enjoy wilderness and natural settings for my subjects.
Sometimes I paint from the roadside or hike in or paint from my small rowboat. My set up is portable and efficient. Over the years I have learned what works and have simplified my process. Typically I complete 90% of a painting in the field with the final strokes being applied back at my home studio.These days I have been visiting National Parks and finding a never ending source of inspiration. It is a blessing to be able to get out and paint. The works of Edgar Payne, Maynard Dixon, William Wendt, Winslo Homer, Carl Rungius and other outdoor painters are a constant source of my studies. My works have been collected throughout the states and beyond. I incorporate many of my painting concepts into these works. Although my works are offered in galleries and other outlets the world wide web has enabled me to sell directly to art lovers and collectors. The Hudson Valley in the fall is a great time to paint.
This painting started out a little larger. But I reduced the size of this painting as I thought the composition was better. Painting is offered without frame. Although if you contact me I can list some frame options on E Bay for your consideration.
