Sonoran Sun to help you stay cozy

I’m not sure how your neck of the woods looks like, but on our little central Arizona mountain (5800 feet) the temperatures are sure on the chilly side this Febuary! We still have half an inch of hail from the last winterstorm on our deck. Luckily, the Valley is only a two hour ride downhill, […]

Off to Germany!

I am pretty excited about these new paintings, as they combine two beautiful media: luscious oil paints on a […]

Plein Air: Paint Outside!

Why would I scramble over rock piles with my paint utensils strapped to my back at temperatures in the 30s instead of painting in the comfort of my studio?   Maybe you have heard of “Plein Air” Painting, a movement started by the French impressionists a hundredsome years ago. In the last decade, this movement […]
