I love the landscape of the West and my work is an emotional response to what I see. I am a contemporary landscape painter grounded in the Expressionist and Impressionist tradition. My work builds on that tradition through the expressive power of paint applied with brushes and palette knives. My painting is formed by years of observing and painting the landscape on location en plein air. I work directly in oil paint outdoors and in the studio creating a contemporary and colorful interpretation of the landscape and architecture of the American Southwest. I love the beauty of these Western States and I am always looking for the visual poetry that says stop and paint.

taken master plein air workshops and relates these concepts in a helpful way.
Roger has a relaxed manner of teaching and uses positive and encouraging
comments. I would highly recommend taking a Roger Alderman workshop whether you
