Oil and Gouache Landscapes

An Artist’s Journey

Traveling introduced me to the joy of painting. For many years I was merely a photographic observer. In 2003, my semi-retirement from being a research economist at NIST afforded me the time to pursue painting in classes and workshops (mostly with Walt Bartman at the Yellow Barn). With wonderful surprise, I found that plein air painting enriched my travel experience far beyond what my camera could and also introduced me to the beauty and variety of the Maryland landscape.
