2010’s First Painting

My plein air painting at its best is an extreme sport, a  walk on the wild side – catching a moment, immediate, somewhat raw and high energy. No taking the work home to “fix” it;  if it doesn’t suit me it is gone.

And then comes winter. A studio painting will continue over days, and the challenge involves balancing freshness and spontaneity with layered depth and detail.

Lavender and Roses is an 18 inch square oil painting.
