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!
PALS had a glorious day out in East Marion, almost at the end of Long Islands North Fork. It's a beautiful ride the entire way there. The temptation to stop along the way to paint various barns and fields is strong, and only insures that we need to return again someday. The Lavender fields were vibrant in purple color, as well as in delicious scent on this perfect summer day! I felt like I was in France! Many of us found ourselves drawn to the artistic, colorful bee hives, like none I've ever seen before. The store there is so special and the perfect ending to my painting day, as we drove home the lovely bunches of lavender we purchased wafted through the air, as a reminder of how lucky we are to live near such beauty.
