“Lifting Fog at Dawn” 11×14 Oil
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.
Michael has done extensive research on the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as it relates to fine art. Click on the image above to read some of his blog posts on the subject.
None of his artwork is created by AI. Nor does he create NFTs. Michael takes pride in an “old school” approach to painting.
