Painting plein-air
handling chaos
dark water
bunny westerns
daily dramas
play battling
interiors / exteriors
container homes
abandoned banquets
I love to paint outside with no do-overs. It has a freshness that studio work does not capture. You are there in the moment. What you are feeling, what you see and what happens while you are in that location is imbedded in the work. It is like a really long exposure photograph that is done badly and because of going through the filter of the human recording device, it has a wonky encapsulation of more than the eye can see. If it works out, and not all plein-airs work, it has an simplified emotional content, a rawness and a sense of shared adventure.
