Mostly I’m attracted to activity in the natural landscape but not everything is a Plein-Air painting outing! Certain groupings of shapes and colors, whether seen gazing out the window or from a photo, inspire musings in paint. The initial structure and design of an idea picks up and leaves off from sighting to brush tip. Cadences of color and light from everyday observances reflected on paper with paint. No grandiose themes and lengthy corrections, only dabs and swooshes to capture a sketchwork of the day.
