Let me know how you would want your book to be inscribed with.
My first book, Fill Your Oil Paintings with Light and Color, has guided many beginning and struggling artists with its simple approach to picture making. For me, seeing the world through the eyes of an artist and sharing the gifts of art have been most rewarding.
This book will encourage you to let your intuition rule when you paint outdoors. Step-by-step demonstrations and stimulating practice exercised in the studio will prepare you for your adventures outside. I encourage you to paint both outdoors and inside. Contemplative study in the solitude of your studio is important to your development into a highly skilled passionate plein air painter. A balanced approach in which you work both indoors and outdoors will foster your growth as an artist painting with purpose.
The great painters of the past created thoughtful art in the studios with no loss of the vitality and spontaneity we associate with painting outdoors. We will explore ways to relive the outdoor experience, enlarge our ideas and refine our compositions.
Discover the secrets to retaining the vitality, spontaneity and harmony of painting outdoors, while using your picture-making skills to create a more thoughtful and powerful statement.
Full of fresh air and fresh art, Landscape Painting Inside and Out will guide and encourage beginners while challenging more accomplished artists to bring greater vitality and a more natural, less formulaic finish to their paintings.

Today I purchased your new book and could not put it down. The key sentence for me in your book was that age has really nothing to do with it! - Jim
I’ve been very frustrated with painting this last year and receiving this book has given me inspiration. I did read “Wanda’s Story” and found it quite encouraging. It was like she was talking directly to me. – Jan
I found it very amazing that although “Light and Color” seemed to cover just about everything, then came this new book and even added more. Kudos! – Valerie
