Palm Desert, CA
I am a devoted painter of the “New American Impressionist Movement”. My mission, as a painter, is to effectively apply colors in a beautiful combination to transmit the many moods of nature. I try to take an honest approach of painting the specific color relationships that I see to interpret the many light keys that nature provides –that’s what ultimately inspires me. Contact me for class/workshop info, as a painting buddy, or for a personal private lesson.

Capture the true beauty of the San Francisco Bay Area in your very own Plein Air painting. You will learn to complete a painting study from start to finish, and have and unique new way to view San Francisco – through your own painting. No painting experience is necessary, and all supplies are provided for a 3-hour acrylic (or 7 hour oil) workshop that will walk you through simple steps to paint your favorite San Francisco Landmarks. Create a new work of art for your home, the perfect gift, or souvenir. You will leave with a completed painting and all the knowledge to complete a Plein Air painting on your own. The instructor will walk you through all the creative steps to learn and employ proper brushstrokes, and new techniques, and leave with an improved level of skill. The instructor will also troubleshoot individual needs during the workshop.
