“My back yard is a plein-air piece that is part of an ongoing series of paintings of our property. It is literally in my back yard. I think all artists have heard it said that there is no excuse for not having anything to paint: ‘You should be able to just go out in your yard and find something to paint. Anything is better than not painting at all.’ My house happens to sit in the middle of 60 acres, so my yard has plenty of possibilities. I have done several paintings with this title. Every time the light changes, I find something new to paint.”
