Plein Air

Painting Plein Air (painting on location) is one of the most rewarding and the most frustrating experiences for me as an artist.  Trying to capture what I am seeing, the light, the textures, the colors at an excact moment in time is so challenging.  Learning to trust my instincts is even more difficult. But, the reward is a painting that puts the viewer there, in that moment.
