Every year or two or three, 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 a week 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.
