“The foundation of my practice is plein air painting. I have loved being outside since childhood and working from direct observation has been key to my development as a painter. It was in a field biology class at UVA that I met my husband, Fred. We are frequently exploring the natural world side by side. Painting and fly-fishing.” – Deliece Blanchard
