I receive many comments from viewers that it "must be a lot of fun,
painting out of doors..."
Well, yes and no.

More than anything in the world, I do love being out in the wilderness. However, painting there, can sometimes be a real challenge! With bugs, wind, rain, and dusty roads (as I was on, to capture this piece), keeping one's inspiration, motivation and goals alive can sometimes be almost impossible!

Not to mention the constantly changing light, which affects all the colors, values and inspiration one first saw...and perhaps, after the lay in, could possibly be gone!
Other than this...yes, it is great "fun" to paint out of doors!!?!

GREAT art can, and is still created in the studio...
often from personal experience, or from photography. An exceptional artist,
who climbed many of the coastal mountains of Washington State, when he was a young man, Robert Walton seldom creates a painting, that does NOT have a snow capped mountain!!

Keeping with the spirit of things:


which should be the basis of painting from your soul more important than any sales, or any approval! You will love the strong beautiful paintings created by
Robert Walton.
