“All I want to do is paint”, has been my standard answer to ‘what will you do when you retire”? So I’ve been painting every free moment whatever I see in my travels: the play of light dancing in the trees, flirting with the grass and kissing the clouds; the way the sun can light a leaf and warm a rock or make black lighter than white. I want to share this vision by following the plein air tradition and being out there in the elements to “capture” the moment. To meet my goal, I’ve studied with artists: Janice Hindes, Camille Pryzwodek, Sherrie McGraw, Laura Robb. John Budicin and Ron Rencher. I also squeeze in painting regularly with other members of the Coppini Academy of Fine Art. I am an active member of the San Antonio River Art Group, the Austin Pastel Society and the New Braunfels Art League.
