My favorite medium is oil, but I also enjoy working with soft pastels. I live in Wilmington, Delaware, where I learnt to paint in the “Loper Tradition”. Edward Loper Sr., a Delaware native, taught his students to apply the paint color-by-color, accentuating luminosity and glow by contrasting light and dark. Most of my landscape paintings are done on location while a still life is done in a studio. My more recent work reflects an attempt to accentuate color areas and simplify design.
