The landscape is important to me and painting it is a challenge. Many of the paintings you see are plein-aire, and a few are from photographs where painting on location was not possible. Many times I will paint outdoors but rarely begin and end a painting in one session; therefore a painting is often finished in the studio with a camera image or a drawing as a reference. Almost never is the landscape copied as it truly is. I interpret with my own palette.
