This section displays some of my "plein-air" paintings. Translation? It means you paint them outside, typically in one sitting, from life. I don't get to do this as often as I would like, but when I do, it's always fun. (Except the Alpine Meadow painting where I was eaten alive by mosquitoes, that was "successful," but it wasn't fun.)

The photograph to the left is my plein-air "setup": a brilliantly designed pochade box from (I get no kickback but tell them I sent you) that's attached to a tripod. (The view is of Fallen Leaf Lake, looking north with South Lake Tahoe in the distance.)
