I'm not a plein air painter. I prefer to paint in studio for many reasons . . . to include Mosquitos. I do feel like I need to paint outside once in a while just for the practice. My preference outside is toward Photography, I don't like to sit in one place too long, I like to explore and take in as much as I can. I spend a great deal of time outdoors, on the river, lakes, wildlife and in the city as well. I love being outside observing, learning and immersing myself in the environment I'm in. I take that information back into my studio to paint. I'm showing some of my Photography in my Blogs right now, I haven't decided if I'll make a photography gallery like I had on my old site as of yet.
