I love working from life, but reality is just a jumping-off point for me. The essence of the scene inspires my initial drawing, and then I take the design in exciting new directions with energized color, dancing shapes and rhythmic patterns. Unfolding with a life of its own, each new painting is a joyful exploration!

Some Enchanted Evening

I started this at a real farm in Brentwood, but as I worked it morphed into a moonlit labyrinth. I love combining plein air with fantasy!
