We love Plein Air painting. There is something so special about being out in the fresh air, alone or with other artists, seeking out a new location or vista to set up your gear. Ignore the wind, or snow, or burning sunshine while adding one more color, one more paint stroke as you dive deep into your painting. Enjoy the autumn leaves and a bubbling brook, the salty beach air... All of this is the essence of Plein Air Painting... on location...feeling one with nature. Join us!
It amazes me that I have never heard of this park ever before, and yet 2 people just told me about it in the same week (Thanks Muriel and Allie)! Well I loved it and I can't wait to go back again. It was quite an adventure finding though, and my journey involved at least 4 U-turns, but it was well worth the effort. I was surprised at how many PALS found there way, and I am sure there will be some wonderful paintings from this location.
When it was time to leave, thank goodness for Rose Ann, because I am not sure I would have found my way to my car on my own! Next time I will sprinkle some paint brushes to follow!
This was a sunny, hot day...we all searched for some shade. Sharon was creative with the use of her car doors, and most of us were inside the wedding gazebo, enjoying the piped in music and a beautiful view of the Great South Bay as well as some nice conversation. I love summer!
This was a beautiful location, enjoyed by all. Each way we looked was another painting. It was also one of the locations that was enjoyed by plein air painters the week before with the Gallery North Wetpaints Festival.
