Plein air painting (painting from observation in the landscape) is an approach to painting that was established by the French Barbizon School painters in the 1830’s.  I have been making small, quick observational paintings in this way since 1997.  These images are then transformed in the studio into larger works that utilize a varied grammar of painting to explore states of perceptual and psychological dissonance.
