The climate allows plein air painting year-round, and the landscape is varied and engaging. Shown here (above) is an 8"x8" plein air oil sketch entitled Mendocino Headlands. Below is an 11"x14" entitled Above the Falls. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA "My goal is to make a record of a time and place that holds interest and creates an invitation for exploration. I paint wet-in-wet oil on canvas and try to complete a piece in one sitting." Sometimes the plein air sketch becomes a finished painting, but he might also use them as source material for larger paintings.
