I have been moving away from landscape paintings to more city and town paintings often inhabited with people as cities and towns really are. I like creating places where people are doing something like reading or having coffee, shopping, fixing their boat, etc. About a third of the pieces in this section were painted plein air which literally means "fresh air" but for painting means painted on-site. I only plein air in the summer but it's super fun and super challenging. During the other three seasons I mix painting still life set-ups in my studio with painting from reference photographs. I'm an avid photographer and only paint from my own photographs often combining parts of many photographs to create one painting.
