Here is one of my first mountain and lake scenes. I don't know how many I painted of different mountains and lakes before it dawned on me that this is what I love to do!
Following your passion is not just becoming a painter but also what kind of painter. Through your own discoveries we create culture: you paint your passion and I paint mine.
Being focused will help inspire your next painting. Just because I can do something doesn't mean I am passionate about it. A good story or painting will have that passion and not just a good line.

I was unable to add text to my last posting, therefore I am noting here that everyone can join my Kickstarter Project-Wilderness Landscapes. Buy a painting at cost, and we can all celebrate wilderness. I want to let you know through this Blog how many ways artists have to sell art, give art to patrons and celebrate culture. This en plein air painting shows what you will find in my Landscape Project! Have fun and start a project of your own!

Here is a painting from Yosemite. Yosemite is 90% wild (and Wilderness) and we all enjoy it, unless you think there are too many people?
I have a celebrate wilderness Project on Kickstarter

This project ends April 4th and is a way I can give paintings away for cost! Thanks for joining in and I hope to see you soon, painting and enjoying great landscapes.

California Hills are so fun to paint and they inspire the imagination...just around the corner...I know this secret spot. I believe this is what makes a great painting which is that the painter does not try to paint everything they see but just a solid structure. This allows the viewer to add their own details. Its a conversation in paint! Paint the land forms in a landscape and let the viewer add the details.
