Plein Air {painting day}


{my outdoor studio}

Couldn't have been a better day to take part in the Plein Air painting event held in DeSmet, SD. It was a little toasty sitting in the sun for several hours... yes, I will be sporting a nice sun burn for the next few days but it was worth it! Several artists attended. Everyone picked their own spot and painted their little heart out throughout the day. I can't tell you the last time I was able to paint for hours and hours at a time AND be outside enjoying the gorgeous weather at the same time!!! So peaceful... beautiful scenery... pure bliss. :)

Here's my completed landscape painting. Done with acrylic on a wood panel.
Hope you are having a great weekend!

Of course I love this!!! You're so great at clouds! You should tell everyone it was the Laura Ingalls Wilder site! Oh, and nice bag! Ha ha.
