I am struck by the beauty of light and color in the landscape and am driven to reflect my impressions in paint on canvas.  I work to capture a sense of place in Oregon’s valleys, mountains and coastal towns, or the light in California and other places I visit.  When I look at my Plein Air paintings, I immediately recall the weather, time of day, and my emotional reaction to my surroundings when I created them.  The paintings evoke that place and time for me and transport me right back to that moment!
