I love to paint from life. There are more than three dimensions available when live. It is thrilling to try to capture a precise moment in time. The changing light. A blackbird on his patch of marsh, his personality, movement, smells and sounds of the environment are all in the final work of art. I grew up in the west, loving the vast and varied landscapes. Looking out the car window as my father drove, I learned to be an artist; seeing antelope herds, passing clouds, open spaces, and erasing from my vision the things I did not like to see.
