Two sketches from the Musee D'Orsay's "Paris A La Mode" exhibit examining fashion in Impressionist painting--the top one looking at hats from the period and in paintings by Degas, and below, my study of a Berthe Morisot figure painting that was lovely for both subtlety of drawing and mastery of color (one hundred shades of gray.)

My visual journal is inspired by what I see every day: the weather on my hill in northern Vermont, what’s growing in my garden, a curio brought back from travels or an ordinary object from the kitchen shelf made special by careful looking. "Journal" paintings are fast, improvised daily entries, a chance to experiment with new approaches and pay attention to the here-and-now. When I’m traveling, quickly recorded impressions are posted from Paris, Provence, Spain, Maine and anywhere else I’ll find myself this year. My large studio compositions take time, planning, refining of the original inspiration. I'll also be sharing that different kind of creative process with you here on "A Painter's Year".
