My experience with oils began when I attended Monterey Art School in California and I tutored with several well-known artists in the Carmel area. I have been painting for 50 years. Since retiring to Southern California, I have entered many online juried exhibits. I am a member of the Chula Vista Art Guild and the South Bay Front Art Guild, and I was a Commissioner on the Chula Vista Cultural Arts Commission from 2015-2018.
Painting has always been ‘Food for the Soul’ for me, and my approach is driven by color. I try to create a feeling of the moment, a feeling of the scene, no matter where or how insignificant the composition may seem. I don’t have one particular style, and my general approach is Impressionistic. I like to stretch myself with the usage of various techniques and styles.
