FRANCE AND ITALY
The European countries I've visited offer many different landscapes and architecture.
Every year or two, I travel to Europe for a painting trip. In 2016, I joined an art group in the south of France. Early in 2018, I traveled to Italy and spent time painting in Tuscany. Each time, I returned with a set of small plein air paintings I made in the villages and markets of these wonderfully picturesque areas.
Back home in California, I work in my studio to create larger paintings from my photos and small plein air paintings.
