Athlete to artist. I've painted oceans while living in California, sunsets in New Mexico and Aspens in Idaho. Knowledge learned from each oil painting informs the next work.
I use water soluble oil paints. Drying time is shorter. I don't need toxic solvents. I am able to achieve the look of traditional oils without the hazards.
I go on frequent photo safaris to come up with new ideas. Idaho is teeming with inspirational scenery.
