Form, atmosphere and motion are key elements in my work. I use both palette knives and brushes while applying the oils. I use a limited palette of only a warm and cool side of the primaries with a medium of stand oil and turpentine. This means I have to mix all of my colors including neutrals giving my work a unique color harmony on palette and on linen. Whether I’m in studio or in the harsh elements of nature plein air painting I continue to focus on form, atmosphere and motion.
