Working out of doors from life
or in front of a model is where Dennis feels his best work
is done. "Painting on the spot, I feel I get more
of a sense of light and color, and the interaction with
live impressions gives the painting a freshness that is
hard to capture any other way."
Dennis has participated in national
shows winning honors for both pastels and oils. He also teaches
and demonstrates throughout the state.
