Capturing Life in Oils

The artist says, “I paint to capture life’s magic … to transport you inside my oil paintings – to feel that breeze, hear the sounds, watch what happens, smell the beer.”

Le Soleil D’Or was painted plein air in Paris – capturing a life we appreciate now more than ever. Read about her personal painting trip to France in the Plein Air Today blog post A Paris Plein Air Adventure.
