Studio painting allows me to focus on the subject, take my time and revisit. It’s quiet, meditative, challenging but a little safe.

Then there is painting in plein air. It forces me to recognize that the planet is always moving forward, changing light and my surroundings. I cannot take it all in. I edit mindfully and move forward.

This is messy and hard. This is life. Get on with it.
