Plein Air Easton 2010

Some of you may be wondering why I have not posted a painting for a couple weeks. My family and I were enjoying some time in Minnesota visiting my family and doing some painting and photographing. We spent a few days at a cabin in the Grand Marais area on the north shore of Lake Superior in Superior National Forest on Devils Track Lake. It was beautiful and peaceful; loons calling, birch and spruce trees, flowers, and lakes galore. Every morning I got up at 5am and went painting and moose hunting with my camera. Unfortunately we did not see any moose, only a couple grouse which flew away before I could get within "shooting range". But I plan to have some landscape paintings coming out soon from this trip.

I was accepted into Plein Air Easton again this year. Next week I will be in Easton, Maryland painting like crazy with over 50 other artists. If you happen to be in the area stop by. Plein Air Easton attracts some of the top plein air artists in the world and I'm much honored to have been juried into the event. Monday and Tuesday we will be painting all over Talbot County, Wednesday and Thursday we will be painting in the town of Easton with an exhibit on Friday and a Quick Draw on Saturday. It is always fun to see art being created in just a matter of a few hours and the art that is created is nothing short of beautiful. Here is the link for further information: I hope you and yours doing well and staying cool this summer. I will be posting more paintings very soon.
