2019 presented a lot of course changing that has expanded into my painting.
It is a period of responding to what is before me and the feelings that are generated while there, rather than relying on a painting method and fitting the scene into it.
Some pieces are painterly and some are poetic, all are a true view of the world I live in around Kamloops, BC Canada.
As a photographer and hiker, nature opens a vast selection of expansive views and intimate places to paint outdoors (plein aire), or in the studio.
And speaking of studio painting, I love the light and forms in still life arrangements. Simple things like crockery and fruits are grounding.
Several new art students are taking painting and drawing classes and I am grateful for their interest and to be able to share and pass on to them art traditions.
