Across the Ocean
Many of my paintings are based on my travels to Europe over the past 10 years. While there, it is difficult to do a full-sized painting, so I rely on sketches, quick watercolors, and taking photographs to use back in my studio in Baltimore. I try to paint soon after we return so the excitement and mood of the place are still fresh in my memory. Generally I paint in oil in my studio, though I have been painting more watercolor in the last few years.
