I am a self-taught painter living in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island
Currently working on a set of 8 X 10 inch oil landscape paintings.
The paintings are quick studies of scenes encountered on the local walking trails.
My preferred painting surface is a treated archival quality aluminum panel.
The panels are primed with gesso and painted with oils.
I want to capture the moment - with loose brush strokes, interesting color combinations and patterns.
My goal is to mix the colors once and to avoid reworking and rethinking the work.
I am currently inspired by the paintings of Milton Avery and Charlotte Salomon.
