This is one of the local parks I like painting at. It has numerous trails you can walk that take you thru different habitat from open fields to areas of woods with a creek running thru.
This is that in-between time from late winter with the last remaining patches of snow and right before spring.
My art is inspired by nature. I always had a love for the outdoors so it was just natural that my art followed that direction.
I paint both on location and in the studio. My outdoor work is necessary for capturing the different qualities of light and the ever changing moods of nature. My studio work is fed by all the information I get from painting outdoors, except now I have time to think and plan at a more leisurely pace.I head to the outdoors as a stress reliever and that is exactly what my paintings are about-a peaceful retreat from life’s hectic pace.
