I paint for leisure and enjoyment. I use lots of color, no clouds or dull grays and My Theme is always Happiness Reigns . Like someone said I dont know what it is but your paintings make me feel good. Most of my work is pleine aire landscapes and flowers, the things people hunt to see. I verge on the side of expressionism pushing a little away from reality.
