Landscapes, still life and flowers are my favorite subjects. Color is a vital part of each painting experience I have. Interpreting on canvas or paper the beauty of nature is what my life is about. I have painted since 1996 after not painting for 38 years. I love to express a conception of reality in what I paint but I try to make it my vision and not that of a photograph. I paint in plein air with the Plein Air Painters of Estes Park, CO and The Pleine Air Artists of Colorado. I also paint from set up still lifes and flowers in all of their glory. I wait anxiously for the spring and summer to come every year to unveil nature's beauty.
