This painting started outdoors. I get inspiration from walking and hiking outdoors. I often continue working on a piece in my studio before I get it right.
This painting started as a plein air piece done on Mt Baldy in Eugene, Oregon. I titled it Rough Mood; I am thinking of emotional suggestions as well as the rougher mark making I am exploring.
I painting this landscape in late summer at Mount Pisgah Arboretum near Eugene, Oregon.
This is a small landscape painting I made in the fall at Mount Pisgah Arboretum in Eugene, Oregon. I used mostly a palette knife to create this abstract impressionistic effect.
