I'm a full-time oil painter living in the North Bay. Can be painting vineyards in Napa within 30 minutes of leaving my home or paint within walking distance of where I live on Mare Island. Impressionist Plein Air painting is my passion.
There are many wonderful advantages of being a full-time oil painter. One benefit is enjoying plein air painting with other artists. This week, I painted with Silvio Silvestri. We met at the La Quinta Arts Festival last year and since we live within driving distance, we had the opportunity to paint together. My 8 x 10 called House Shadows is one of two paintings I started that day.
