After almost thirty years I still love painting on location or en plein air. Plein air painting gives me a way to get inside the landscape with all its sights and smells, light and action. I set up my gear, put on some rockin' music, send the critic back to the studio and try to get out of my own way. My goal is always to enjoy the process and produce a direct, honest, lively and colorful account of the scene and my response to it. Through color, lively brush strokes and a rich paint quality I hope my viewers 'see' and feel what I felt that day.

With all due respect to master plein air painter Joaquin Sorolla, I offer these small 6x6 watercolor sketches or notes (apuntes). All were painted en plein air - most on my balcony overlooking the beach, ocean and spectacular Florida clouds. They were done quickly as I try to learn about Florida light and play with watercolor.
This series of fifty original paintings, 'View from the Tenth Floor' is now offered at Beach Park Cafe and Boca Raton Plaza Hotel and Suites in Boca and at Sienna Blue in Deerfield Beach. I've framed them in white archival mats and plastic/plexi display frames for easy travel. Fifty more mats are waiting for what comes next...
