Plein Air Painting

Summer of Plein Air Painting

Our day this week on the Rappahannock.  One person even arrived by bike.  

Starting in the spring my husband and I have painted once a week with a group of plein air painters from Fredericksburg, VA.  It has been such a positive experience to be with this group of enthusiastic painters.  Learning from each other and sharing our progress is a big part of painting together.  Thank you to everyone for your excitement and dedication. 

Each week, Patty O'Brien, our leader,  finds a location, calls for permission from the owners,   makes sure there are bathrooms, and emails everyone in the group with details and directions.  All in all, a job in itself, but she makes it looks easy.  Thank you to Patty for being such a great organizer and communicator. 

Here is a link to our facebook page.  If you want to join the group, paint when you can, and post your paintings on the group page, just click on JOIN which is below the banner.

I think my next blog will be about the challenges and benefits of plein air painting.
