In 1975 I moved to Oregon and immediately became captivated by the beauty and diversity of the landscape. My lifetime interest in oil painting became focused on capturing this beauty on canvas. My goal is to make a record of a time and place that holds interest and creates an invitation for exploration. I paint wet-in-wet oil on canvas and try to complete a piece in one sitting. My approach is to make an oil sketch in the field to capture the color, light and mood of the place, and also take photographs for reference. If I am lucky I may get a finished painting in the field, but my intent is to use these source references for creating a finished work in the studio.
