Small original paintings can have a big impact. Get up close and notice the brushstrokes and textures. As a collection, they can fill a larger wall space with colour and energy. As single pieces, they are easy to place, easy to frame and easy to gift.
Many of my small pieces are done en plein air, on site, or you might call them field studies. Sometimes they end up being the work-up for a larger piece.
When I paint outside, there is a certain urgency to work quickly. Shadows move at an amazing speed, and light changes in an instant.
Plein air pieces tend to be loose and fresh and sometimes the environment becomes part of the painting....like bits of stuff in the air, sand, or little no-see-ums that land on the wet paint.
I always take lots of photos when I'm out, so that in bad weather, I will be able to work inside. Not all of these are plein air pieces.
