Anything painted directly, on the spot, always has a strength, a power, a lively touch that is lost in the studio. Your first impression is the right one. Stick to it and refuse to budge.
- Eugene Boudin
Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.

    I love the crispness of this work and the shimmery quality of the light here! I sure wish I were taking a long walk along this little path right about now! ! !

    Some truly fantastic artwork–I love the greens, especially in the water.

    Gorgeous! The effect of light through the leaves and the handling of the water conveys the atmosphere beautifully. Thanks for sharing.
