This is an oil painting of a scene I previously painted in watercolor, a view of Brokentop from a ski run on Mt. Bachelor. It was really fun to translate to the new medium, taking advantage of its capabilities and working with its limitations. I love the versatility and adjustability of oil. Every mark is intentional.
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
