Plein Air Painting was something I wanted to do for years before I actually started. Once I did, I knew I was destined to do this for the rest of my life! Now I paint as often as I can and when I'm not painting, that seems to be all I think about. Plein Air in Michigan's winter has actually allowed me to enjoy, and endure the cold months that exist here. Before I painted out in it, I didn't want to see it, and I definitely didn't want to be in it. Now I look forward to every opportunity to get out and paint and enjoy all of the incredible beauty that exist there.
