Happy New Year to everyone: my friends, painters, musicians and all. We are never sure what life will bring with each coming year. Let’s hope it is filled with good health, first and foremost. And let there be time for sharing with friends and loved ones.
I look forward to enjoyable times painting en plein air with friends and new faces and reaching out for occasional break-throughs that can appear at any time while I paint.
The painting Christmas Tree 30x36 began as a sketch one snowy afternoon in December when the sun broke through overcast skies. After time for contemplation in my studio a new 30x36 canvas was chosen to expand on the theme. What I hope you see is the synergy of that special moment, recorded by sketch and painted with the resources of years of practice.
