I was so honored to be contacted by the editor of PleinAir Magazine, Steve Doherty, a couple of months ago to be interviewed for a feature article in the February/March 2017 issue.   After the interview he sent me his rough draft a few weeks later and asked me to send him about 15-20 images of recent paintings, both plein air and studio.   I just received the magazine and it looks great!  I am really excited.  The cover painting is gorgeous….done by an artist named Dan Young.   You can click on the link below to read the article under “Artist Profiles”, and also subscribe to the digital version of the magazine if you would like to see the rest of the paintings.   Thank you, Steve, and all the people at PleinAir Magazine for doing such a great job.  I am so grateful.  Read the full article HERE.
