I am highlighting some of my plein air work. This watercolor is Winter Moon and it is in a 14 X 16 simple metal frame. 

2021 Artist Statement

Seeing a sunset and painting it on site is not the same as painting in my studio. The emotional connection is very real in an outdoor setting. To hear the  frogs by a lake, to feel the crisp Minnesota air, to bask in the sunshine, and to touch the waving grasses,  all make my creativity soar. This is why I paint in watercolor and acrylic outdoors.
Mark making is a great  way to start  a painting. When I begin I might use a votive candle to randomly draw into the watercolor paper, This process makes lines that resist the paint.  Or I might just play with color.  Then, I use a large brush for a watery sky.  My palette knife or my fingernail make marks in wet paint.  These marks form grasses in the foreground or birch trees in the background.  Or for a real challenge, I do an entire work of art with a credit card or palette knife.
I enjoy the process of making marks.  All of my senses are used in my art making process.
