I have been producing original oil paintings since 2000 and have mainly focused on landscape paintings. However, when the weather is really bad I turn my attention to still life subjects, mainly flowers. My greatest joy in painting is to be outdoors in beautiful surroundings. I mostly use 11" x 14" canvas or smaller when painting in "Plein-Air" in order to complete the task more quickly. Weather generally is not a factor although painting in the early morning or late afternoon on a nice sunny day is preferred.
