Archive Oils from 2003-2007
In 2003 I was able to return to my first love, painting landscape. Through the move to Bruges in the spring of 2004 I traded the rolling hills of the Vlaams Brabant countryside for the complexity of a canal cityscape.
This change in venue forced me back to the drawing board in more ways than one.
Bruges was no location for capturing spontaneous effects of light without doing some serious homework first. Thus the landscapes on this page document some bit of my re-learning progress.
All were initially developed in the studio; most were completed en plein air. Additionally, there is also a series of beautiful Greeting Cards made from these paintings that is now available.
