Plein Air Painting
The experience of being outdoors and beyond one's self: the exhilaration one feels immersed in a seemingly boundless outdoor environment inspires the paintings below. These works also express the physical act of painting which feels freeing and instinctual outdoors. Many of these plein air paintings were completed during summer in Maine where the sky, grass, water and land all seem to envelop and heal one's body. Illness and limitation fades away as one is absorbed in light and sound.
