I'm a full-time oil painter living in the North Bay. Can be painting vineyards in Napa within 30 minutes of leaving my home or paint within walking distance of where I live on Mare Island. Impressionist Plein Air painting is my passion.
When the greys of winter turn quickly to the bright colors of spring, my portable outside easel and I are ready to go. There is something about springtime painting that lifts my spirits. The stark contract from greys and browns to brighter colors is undeniable. In Northern California, springtime brings the anticipated wild mustard flowers, lupins, and poppies. Like other artists and photographers, I look forward to this annual event.
