College, the Keokuk Art Center, the Fort Madison Art Center, Iowa Wesleyan, La Poste

“As a plein air painter, I paint by observation” states Baughman. 
“I don’t restrict myself to subject or medium. I may paint industrial conglomerations outdoors,
or figurative from vintage pictures;
whatever has a combination of line or shape or rhythm which grabs my attention.
I also like to explore many mediums, from watercolor to woodcut to casein.
The fun is in the process and exploration of the work, and communicating a time, place or interesting
design to viewers.
The challenge is to keep on keeping on and have fun doing it, and
hope that my enjoyment of painting comes through to viewers.”
