"[Paintings] are consolers of loneliness, and a relief to the jaded mind, and windows to the imprisoned thought; they are books, histories and sermons--which we can read without the trouble of turning over the leaves."

~Sir John Gilbert

My passion is oil painting outdoors in the local hills and farmlands of my native Utah. Plein Aire painting means feeling the breeze, relishing the color and sensing the sunlight while painting, making it an experience of total immersion. Many of my outdoor painting experiences become impetus to larger studio works later.
