Day one--2009 Hood River Plein Air Event

Orientation was this morning at the Gorge White House. There are 32 painters this year and nearly all of them turned out to receive instructions and some great gifts from sponsors. I chose to paint on a street behind the property of the White House. This is a beautiful spot too...old buildings that looked so interesting in the shadows and the bright sunshine.

Beautiful, Celeste, so it is really worth going to the Hood River Plein Air Event, last year was great, and this year, the results so far prove that you get lots of inspirations.

Great painting.
