Plein Air x Studio

Painting outdoors has always been fascinating to me. I love capturing the vibe from a place I visit and nothing better then sketching from life to truly get the energy of a subject.

Amazing Scenery for My Art

Can a place be so inspiring? Well, I have to say it is not just the place, it is the people. Southerners seem to be the friendliest people I've met in this country. When I started dating my husband (we met in Brazil), he said I would love it here. I replied saying that I … Continue reading Amazing Scenery for My Art
