I love being able to paint outside on site. Studio work allows me to chase down and explore ideas, but all the energy is found outside. The swaying of a leaf in the breeze, the musky scent of soil, it helps enliven your brush stroke and creates a flowing conversation with the subject you're painting. Nothing will ever be as wholly engaging to my senses and enjoyable as the experience of plein air painting.
