Congratulations to our
Third Place Award of Excellence Winner
Michael was awarded the third place for his 16”x 20” oil painting
I am a representational oil painter specializing in urban and plein air landscapes. Most of my paintings are started in the field and finished in my studio. I am one of those artists who loved art from a very early age. I will always remember that first trip I made to an art museum when I was very young and being absolutely mesmerized by all the artwork, especially the colorful and expressive impressionist work.
I am a signature member of Laguna Plein Air Painter Association and have been juried and placed in various shows and art competitions including LPAPA, California Art Club, Huse Skelly Gallery, San Clemente Plein Air, Oceanside Museum of Art, Fallbrook Plein Air, and Randy Higby small work show.
About Spring Shower
Spring Shower shows the moody side of Spring. Sure it is a time of regeneration and growth and flowers, but there is also rain and cold at times. Somehow it all works together and gives us this beautiful environment we all live in!
