Me in a nutshell

My photo
Pretty much every morning I get up at sunrise and take a walk with my dog.I like a big cup of coffee in the morning and a cold beer in the evening.I enjoy building stuff and for sure over my life have made more than my fair share of sawdust.Now I love to paint.It all started in July of 2009 when I took a painting class at the local art co-op.

Necessity is the Mother

Of Invention.This is my Oz plein air gear. A tabletop easel with a wire hook and the trees here are so gnarly that its easy to find a hook spot at the right height.Just be on the leeward side of the tree out of the wind and paint something within easy view and "Bobs your uncle". The good thing about this rig is it forces you to step back to see the subject you are painting.One of my bad habits is I tend to get to close to my canvas
