Traditional Gallery 

The traditional paintings will continue to be part of my focus.  While I keep myself grounded in representational art, I will continue to enjoy the various challenges presented by plein air painting, or painting on site.  I belong to a group of artists who regularly plan painting events all over the Hudson Valley.  The shared energy and camaraderie is a very important element of my art journey…

England 2004

This gallery contains paintings and color studies from my two weeks of Heaven traveling and painting in England with three other artists.  We spent a week in the Cotswolds and a week in the Lake District.  This immersion style of painting is energizing, exhilarating and challenging.  We dealt with the weather, a tiny car, and wet oil paint and emerged as better painters. 

A wonderful experience!!
