This exhibit of artwork features a collection of oil paintings I created mostly on location or “en plein air” alongside all types of water bodies from seas to creeks. The intent of these paintings created on location is always to immerse myself in the subject, no pun intended! Well actually, I have been in the water before or after painting it a few times, an exhilarating experience at waterfalls!  After deciding on a composition, I try to reflect deeply about what I am painting, with a listening eye in a sense, then I translate it back to you in paint. Another title for this exhibit might easily have been “Drinking Beauty”, for that is essentially what I am doing.
