Platte Clove Artist in Residence
Discovering Platte Clove’s waterfalls as A-I-R in 2017 and 2006, I created several oils on canvas and plein air paintings of the waterfalls. I remember being engaged by their energy, their sights and sounds. I felt a sense of urgency and excitement I hadn’t felt in years. I continuously painted canvas after canvas in this unique landscape environment. I revisited Platte Clove as A-I-R again in 2017, this time working with larger scale plein air and more expressive painting approaches. I challenge myself to make good contemporary landscape art.
