I have read, any true nature lover loves every stone and every stick. That’s me. I have a special love of nature, as those priceless landscapes are disappearing I can’t paint them fast enough. Oils are my chosen medium and I especially enjoy Alla Prima, an Italian word meaning to paint quickly and straight from the tube. This method is used mostly Au Plein Air, when time is crucial as air movement and sunlight change quickly altering the subject. The freedom in painting quickly combined with the ambiance of passing birds, rushing water is trilling to me. In a broad sense, even the painter is in the picture. All of this becomes part of the final piece of work and like any work of art, is a story.
