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!
We enjoyed celebrating the wonder of plein air, after meeting up at Forge River Marina in Mastic NY. First we shared our memories and stories about September 11th. I think we collectively wanted to really appreciate our art and the beauty of the day and to live on in memory of all of the lost people on this 10th sad anniversary of 9-11. God bless everyone.
