Dancing Light Studio

In the summer I spend a lot of time outside painting landscapes. Plein air painting is literally “fresh air” painting. Sunlight gives us perfect lighting, especially before 10:00 am and after 4:00 pm. Nature is a wonderful teacher; the light will never appear quite the same way from one day to the next so the subject matter is always new and interesting. I take many pictures with my digital camera while I am out painting so that I can analyze the differences between what the camera sees and what I know was really there. This process allows me to paint more realistic studio paintings when I am stuck inside during the winter.

I’ve done many paintings of houses and barns as well as traditional landscape scenes. If you have a special interest in having your property or favorite place painted email me and I would be happy to take a look and see if your source material could be made into a good painting.
