Welcome to my art blog where I post recent photos of my work and journal about my life as an artist. Although I spent my early childhood in the Catskill Mountains or New York, I now live and work in Tulsa Oklahoma. It is from my early life in the mountains that I developed a love of the natural world which now includes vast prairies and endless skies. My goal is to see and respond to the beauty that I find around me with a paint brush, paint and canvas.
Painting the Landscape Outdoors and in the Studio with Margaret Aycock
I am excited to share with you artsy folks that I just finished a book on painting the landscape plein air and in the studio. If anyone has a moment, I would love for you to read a small portion and give me some ( hopefully, positive ) feedback. I started the book after going to France earlier this year. I stayed in the guest house of an abbey there and painted in the poppy fields, olive and almond groves that surrounded the abbey. I was able to paint in the same areas of the pioneers of the French Impressionist movement. I will try to get a link up today in my blog so that you can buy the book, if interested.
