There is nothing more fun than painting plein air in a beautiful place.

For nearly thirty years now I have been a plein air painter. The notion of painting outside has always appealed, but when I decided to make it a profession I was living aboard a sailboat in the Chesapeake Bay-there simply wasn’t enough room below to have a true studio.From very early on I had spent time outside with a biologist father - walking in the woods or paddling or camping. He had been a sailing counselor at a summer camp in western North Carolina so it was a given we would sail-a canoe at first and then a Lightning one design.Later in mid-life,on a sailing trip from Bali to Cyprus,there was a six month layover in Sri Lanka to await the Monsoon change. Visits to a local batik shop were fascinating and I found that I kept going back to watch and then to try it myself.I had always drawn and painted, but art as a profession was never a consideration. When I saw the beauty of the batik, the drawing of patterns, the colors, I was hooked. I took up a sketchbook and started drawing everything in sight. A stint in the core studio art program at VCU in Richmond, VA and study at the Université de Montpellier in southern France convinced me that perhaps I should give it a go. I haven’t looked back. Of course,I have a studio now and more closet space than I had room below on a sailboat. If you can find something that truly captivates, you are lucky - even luckier if you can give it serious pursuit.
