Daggett is inspired by the rich, varied, and sometimes harsh New Mexico landscape, which he captures en plein air. He works predominantly within a 50-mile radius of his home and studio, seeking out scenes that hit him visually. He explains, "I'll pull over and say, 'Wow, I have to paint that.'" He works fast and completes each piece on location, battling wind, cold, and other weather conditions. "The challenge is trying to capture the scene as it's happening," he says. He relishes this test, as it allows him to convey his own action-oriented experiences to viewers. "I never gave up and put all my effort into it," he says of learning to paint en plein air, which he considers the most challenging thing he has ever done. Daggett's creative process is multi-faceted, incorporating discovery, spontaneity, and exploration at every turn. He constantly studies various painting techniques and styles, both historical and contemporary, and is influenced by artists like Edgar Payne and Alvaro Castagnet. As he explains, "I love the challenge—to be out there and see the whole day changing before your eyes and figuring out how to capture it. Nothing beats it."

Art, fine art, original, Daggett
