I really enjoy looking at your paintings each day. Thank you for taking the time to both paint and post them!

I read your comment about the rooster painting and wonder if you usually from photos.

Thank you Mary! I prefer to paint on location or plein air. Thats all I did for years. Now with a toddler, I usually only paint during naptime. I don't paint from photos printed on paper, I paint from photos that I have taken and downloaded to my laptop. I wouldn't be able to paint from photos successfully if I had not painted plein air. A photo leaves out so much.

Thank you for asking Mary. I appreciate your interest in my artwork.

I love this painting -- the blue and sun-touched clouds are perfect. Can you believe it's turning fall already?

Thank you Studio-middle! No, I can't believe it. I always enjoy the change of color but the season is too short for me :)
