52nd National Catalog


I love painting “en plein air” (French for “open air”). As a kid I was always happiest playing outside and mucking it up with my siblings and friends. I guess it’s a natural progression to enjoy painting outdoors even more than I do in my studio, with the exception of those bitter, cold Colorado days. While I enjoy painting the classic landscapes and have no end to inspiration in the West, painting in a garden is truly my “happy place”. This work was painted at the Denver Botanic Gardens. I particularly enjoy

this hidden niche, filled with weathered, classical columns.

Sometimes the hardscape in a garden adds just the right touch for creating an outdoor still life.
