    Original Plein-Air Painting

    This artwork is the heart of the mission! These paintings are the direct product of daily exploration. Literally meaning “in plain air”, these are on-site observational paintings. The principle of Plein-Air painting captures the moment, where photography cannot (because of how the camera mashes, groups, and distorts color), where the artist battles the elements as well as the changing of what he sees with the movement of the sun. While these are severely underpriced, this is the cornerstone of the work I will make abroad, and what I would like the trip to evolve around. On the back of each painting will have the coordinates, the region/ town I am in, and small journal entry, capturing the zeitgeist of not only the time, the trip, but also THE PAINTING!!! These will be shipped upon return of the trip. You will also receive a set of 10 postcards.

    Masterwork

    This is the final summation of all the work; what everything builds toward, and my original incentive for creating this project. These paintings will be 100+ hours in work time and at least 30”x 40” in scale. My vision is to emulate a master painting you would see in a museum. This massive endeavor is priced cheap. Why? Just so I can do it! Support of this quantity will render the best quality. Your support and belief in this project means so much to me.

    You will also receive a set of a handwritten thank you note, 10 postcards, and a hardcover copy of the book, “Castles & Seascapes”, with your name in is as a supreme benefactor.
