Painting ‘en plein air’ is the ultimate in direct
observation.  The subject is right there.  Colors and
values are right there.  It’s all right there for the

picking. The challenge comes in knowing what to do
with the flood of information.

In my work I look for portraits in the everyday.  

Portraits of objects, trees, buildings, vehicles,
interiors, exteriors, etc.  Everything has a story.
My paintings strive to bring that narrative to life.
