I spent ten days back on Kauai at the end of March, plein air painting, photographing, and researching an ongoing art project.
“Nualolo Kai” is fresh off the easel after an intense week of painting! This is one of the largest and most detailed paintings I’ve ever created, and it was so much fun from beginning to end!
I spent the week between Christmas and New Year’s in Los Angeles, California, painting a two-story beach path mural on a busy street corner in Santa Monica.
The greatest gift of a residency, to me, is the space it creates for complete dedication to a single idea.
Rothko’s soft-edged color field abstracts are what convinced me that I might like modern art.
The only thing better than muskrats is BABY MUSKRATS. Which I saw today on my return trip to Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge.
