My Painting Journey.....
I began painting outside (en plein air). I thought then that on-site painting was the only way to paint ...
... until I discovered rusty train cars, and my thinking changed. I wanted to spend more time working on those paintings than a few hours outside. So I moved inside to work in the studio.
Somewhere along the way, I fell in love with vintage photographs so decided to try paintings based on those. Then, because I was still in love with trains, I found historic train photos to use as inspiration for painting.
Still, I’ve never stopped painting outdoors, whether in Virginia, West Virginia, Mexico, or wherever I find myself. Moving back and forth between studio painting and plein air painting is energizing and invigorating. I love both.
