One of the most interesting, genuine and unique ways to create new art is through plein air paintings. Though the fancy French term may sound complicated, quite simply, plein air paintings are created in an outdoor, natural setting. This allows the artist to truly capture the essence of their surroundings and translate it beautifully to the canvas.

It takes artists years of experience to master the techniques and nuances that make plein air paintings so aesthetically pleasing. In fact, I've been doing these paintings for over 30 years, and have just begun to fully figure everything out. The difficulty of learning the intricacies of plein air paintings is one of the major reasons that I offer workshop instruction. My goal is to teach my students all of the knowledge I’ve gained since I began my journey.

If you are interested in collecting plein air paintings, I offer a variety of fine art pieces for sale. My colorful paintings capture some of nature's most beautiful settings. They are wonderful additions to any collection, and can serve as commercial or residential décor pieces. If you have any questions about any of my paintings or workshop instruction classes, contact me today.
