Plein Air Painting at the Park
I am going to go to a Plein Air painting event with a fellow artist next month who is very talented, but doesn’t do a lot of Plein Air painting. So for our first outing of the season together to warm up for the event last week she brought so much stuff (that included a wooden table and a big easel), that she could hardly carry it and had to make two trips to the car. I loaned her an extra set up I had to get used to before the event that streamlines things a bit. The light shining from the path in the part we were in just screamed in color. It was incredible.

My art is about seeing something of inspiration in nature or in everyday life and then expanding on what I see, trying to say something about it that hopefully will speak to the viewer I will attempt to capture the interplay of light and shadow by simplifying and often modifying the shapes. To be more impactful. In order to encapsulate the mood of the moment, I like to vary the texture and size of the strokes and use bolder colors than you might actually find in my starting reference.
