ARTIST STATEMENT

 

The colossal challenge of completing 2,014 consecutive days of Alla Prima Plein Air painting has been accomplished. For 5 years, 7 months, and 11 days, I painted daily; persevering through rain and snow, negative 20 to 100+ degrees, 30 stitches, broken bones, separated ribs, a couple of cases of the flu, multiple colds, family deaths and births. While thoughts of quitting or painting from inside crossed my mind, I never gave in. It was usually on those days I seemed to do his best work. The other challenges were to never get complacent or paint the same thing over again, as well as, to paint out of MY comfort zone, trying more complex subjects. Something I normally would not have done. Sometimes it worked out well, and other times it turned out to be a great learning experience. The experience of a lifetime.
