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!
While PALS painted on the east coast in NY, I was painting on the west coast
in California. I painted in Aptos, Capitola, Carmel, and Lake Tahoe, but my favorite location was Old Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey. My friends Priscilla and Durinda and I ended up lucking out and painting in the America Impressionist Society paint out. The weather was perfect and there were artists with easels as far as the eye could see. Another highlight was catching the AIS annual juried show at Mountainsong Galleries in Carmel. The paintings in that show were outstanding. My new love...California!
