SAND

Many of the small paintings below were painted en plein air, or “in open air.” The larger works were based off of the outdoor studies. Painting on location and observing a scene first hand can be the most accurate way to observe and share what we see. Simply using a camera distorts the actual colors, values, and proportions of a subject. There are so many visual treasures waiting to be found in God’s creation. As Michael Card puts it: “There’s beauty there to blind the eye.” It is a joy to see what God, the Master Artist, has created!
