I go back and forth in my painting styles between contemporary and classical art. Cities are exciting and beautiful in their own way, but out in the country There’s solace, harmony and wonderful subdued Earth colors. When I paint in the outdoors, I’m usually in a secluded spot where there’s no distractions. This makes the painting process more enjoyable. When I paint, there is no concept of time, or even temperature in some cases. If the painting’s coming together well, a hot day in the field doesn’t matter, that’s how engrossed you can be. Art and music; They serve different purposes.
