En plein air is a French term for outdoors, and plein air painting is a rapid approach that has a fresh impressionistic look. For plein air commissions, such as wedding paintings, I paint live at the actual event and finalize details in my studio.

On-site process

For this event I set up before the ceremony began and went to work! I was happy to paint and interact with guests that came to watch or ask questions. The fun continued at the wedding reception afterward.

Other special occasions 

Engagements, anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays are perfect opportunities to surprise a loved one with portraits. Another great way to memorialize a loved one is to create a tribute portrait.
