Everything I have ever done has had to do with art. It has been a wonderful journey. When I started painting Plein Air I found this quote, “Beauty is powerful. It can inspire greatness lift a heavy heart and stir a sleeping soul to Life.” I think of this quote often when I start a painting and my goal is to accomplish this with each piece I paint. If a viewer can step into the scene I have just painted and get as much pleasure from it as I did painting it, I consider it a successful painting
