Hello all,
Above is a 14x11 plein air piece painted at Alabama's Noccalula Falls last month. I joined the Alabama Plein Air Painters group for a nice sunny day there,  and a great dinner afterward. Only a two hour drive, and well worth it for the fun and practice. Hope to see some of you at Plein Air Easton in a week or so.....58 top artists competing in the heat and humidity of coastal Maryland.
For those interested in a great time of fun and challenging learning, don't forget my up coming workshops.....August, September,October, November......referred to in previous blog(s) always, feel free to email me if questions.....
Stay cool....!
