“Early Spring Day” 11×14 Oil/Canvas
Each of Michael’s colorful landscapes depict a “moment in time.” Evoking the brilliant light of the American Southwest and Maine’s coastal areas, they represent a deep meditation by the artist on the world he inhabits.
In addition to painting full-time, Michael teaches plein air painting workshops and runs painting retreats in scenic locations. A frequent writer for art magazines, he wrote his latest book, Beautiful Landscape Painting Outdoors: Mastering Plein Air, for both beginners and experienced painters.
In September 2024, Michael will spend a full month in Scotland. You can support his Scotland trip at Patreon.
