Daniel Kepl interviews Ojai-based plein air landscape artist Jeff Sojka (pronounced Soyka) whose work is on permanent display at Ojai’s Trowbridge Gallery, on the eve of his Excellent Adventure to trace the European painting journey of American landscape master Edgar Alwin Payne (1883-1947). Later this summer, and in the company of his seven year-old daughter, Jeff plans to re-visit the locales of Payne’s European painting adventures in the 1920s and re-paint some of Payne’s greatest scenes.
