He shares the landscape artist’s love of the outdoors and attempts to capture it with liberal paint application, dramaticRead more

Senses intensify as you enter the alpine above the tree lines knowing you won’t get back anytime soon. The window of time to paint goes quick as you must begin the long trek back to base camp at Lake O’Hara before sundown. In the evenings we sat on the shores of the lake watching a late summer light show – the ever changing curtainRead more
