I want this to be a record of my journey from architectural illustrator to fine arts painter, focusing on landscape and still life subjects. There is so much to learn, but this is more for the journey than the destination.

"Warm Summer Days"
This is an oil painting on primed hardboard, 6"x8". It represents the landscape where I drive my truck with mountain bike, on the way to ride in the hills that you see here. I used a warm red underpainting and let it come through here and there as I paint. I've been a commercial studio painter for years and have been trying the plein aire thing and am finding that it's more natural for me to go to a good site and just start the painting and take some photos, go back to the studio and finish it.
