Oil on Stretched Canvas
Some artists enjoy painting plein air. I've done my share of painting outdoors, painting directly from nature. But over time I come to realize that I'm more of a "memory painter". I can observe the landscape in silence. From there I record with my camera or sometimes simply from my own interpretation of memory.
Even if I paint from a photograph, the painting never looks like the photo. For me the painting needs to come from somewhere inside. Only then does my painting look truly authentic.
