I've changed directions in painting as I often do . . .
. . . . and I'm not painting outdoors much any longer. After I spent many years painting outdoors, I realized I was wearing myself out by traveling often to paint. I live in the middle of the Sacramento Valley, in Davis, and I've always traveled to paint, to find the landscapes that really inspire me and my soul.
If I lived in the desert, in the mountains or near the ocean I wouldn't have reached this point so quickly. I've changed gears in the last few years - I've begun a new blog that relates better to my current artwork. I ended the posts with the last entries where I was painting outdoors frequently.
Please visit my new art blog, which picks up after this last post, with contemporary artwork in acrylic and oils - you're welcome to visit!
