Plein Air Magic

The magic of plain air is not always about the painting, although that is important.  Long time ago, back in my intense corporate days, I learned that what you get out of a meeting is not always on the agenda.  Plein air painting is the same thing, we meet people out doing things, fishing, or hiking.  They are always interesting people.  We see wildlife.  We encounter snakes and bugs, or you can even get injured.  Plein air is complicated and satisfiying.

I think this is a lovely painting, Donna, and agree with your thoughts.

Thank you Ida! Thank you for your commentary on the Bill Cone Workshop. It was very helpful.
