9×12 acrylic on canvas. This one was done at a recent plein air competition.. 70 painters participated and produced 127 paintings from 8 am to 4 pm. Great fun!


vineyard, winery, vines, grapes, landscape, summer

I’ve been painting since 2002. I was captivated right away and have only put down my brush since when I’m forced to! Darn bills anyway :/ I also make demo videos and host my online teaching website. I’ve lived in beautiful Oregon for the last few years. The stunning landscape converted me almost entirely to a landscape painter! More recently I have moved to Portland and am in love with the history, energy and people of this beautiful city.
