The landscape of Western Pennsylvania is a constant inspiration to me. Many of these works were done “en plein air”, although trying to catch the right place at the right time with weather conditions and daily work can be a real trick, so a fair number were done from photographs.
I work most often in pastel, especially in the field, although I occasionally work in watercolor from photographs. In addition, I work in pencil and charcoal, working in extreme detail when at home with photographs, and just doing quick “daily sketches”.
Most works are available in their original, but I also offer a variety prints on paper or canvas and notecards of quite a few.
