I adore painting the
extraordinary local landscapes and sharing my enthusiasm through
my teaching. I am pleased when a viewer can walk into the
painting. They are excited to be there, as I feel my work
reflects a mood with which viewers are comfortable and at peace.
I emphasize the importance
of Compositional Value, the balance of warm and cool color, Temperature
and Tonal Value while maintaining focus on the Area of Interest.
I paint and teach in
beautiful Ojai at the studio of Burt Collins, my 17 year friend
