I was very pleased to see my painting used in the poster for the Tarpon Springs FL Plein Air Paint and Photo Event going on this week. The painting "Sunrise on Awnings" was a piece painted last year in the Paint Out. All of the art will be on display at the Artist's Faire Gallery, 111 East Tarpon Avenue from November 11-18.
As an artist raised in the Midwest, the natural beauty of the coastal shoreline has always intrigued and amazed me. I particularly liked the subject matter and the effect of the light, which enhanced the colors, creating unique and interesting reflections and shadows. I strive to blend the fine nuances of color, texture and shapes to create an image that draws the viewer to a pleasant experience. As I continue to paint and continue to grow, I find landscape painting a real challenge as well as a great joy. I use linen canvas on boards or stretched, using professional grade oil paints. My body of work is composed of both Studio and Plein Air paintings
