"Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter’s soul. "

-Vincent Van Gogh

Painting is such a beautiful thing, so tactile and messy and challenging. In addition to studio painting I also regularly practice outdoor "plein air" painting as a member of the Plein Air Painters of the Chesapeake Bay. Our group meets once per week at locations all over the Eastern Shore to try and capture the beauty of the land.
