I am showing drawings and paintings of exteriors and landscapes from sites in NYC and rural areas. My paintings originate as plein-air and proceed to completion later in the studio. During the dynamics of drawing a physical space I am honing my choice of a painting motif. My paintings seek to establish a convincing light and sense of place that is achieved through color exageration and invention.
