While most of Don's work consists of studio paintings, they begin with field trips, plein air sketches and numerous photographs to help define the composition and color relationships. The final studio painting comes from a combination of these sources along with whatever else helps to best describe the setting and express what he sees as its particular beauty.
"I see my art as a means for me to more fully experience the natural beauty and harmony of a setting, and for those who enjoy my work to be reminded of that beauty. I hope the images I paint will bring back some pleasant memories of places you've been and loved or places you would simply love to be."
