After painting on location and from imagination, sometimes it is good to find artists that you admire and emulate their styles and colors in order to learn from the masters.  I really admire Roger Bansemer for his down home images and rich colors.  As I continue to work on my Parkway Series I take time out to look at his work and the work of Julian Merrow-Smith whose plein air paintings I love for their space, perspective and brushwork.  New ideas, new beginnings, the new year become exciting with anticipation of new paintings!
