9X12 Acrylic on canvas. One of 3 paintings I did at a recent plein air competition. 70 painters, 127 paintings in 8 hours. Great Fun!

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.
