Day One--Pacific Northwest Plein Air 2010


Below is a little painting I did from the lawn of the Gorge White House, today..the first day of the Columbia Art Gallery's Pacific Northwest Plein Air 2010 event. It was a perfect day and it was great to see so many familiar faces!

How gorgeous, Celeste! I was going to comment on the gorgeous colors within the mountain, then got swept up in the gorgeous colors of the field! All kinds of gorgeous going on here!

Yes - super painting! Mountains aren't that easy, but you make it look effortless.

I will be screaming through the Gorge at 100 mph, but I wish I could be in this show. I think I'm through on Monday.

Paint well.

Wow,the event's "official" photographer was sure busy! And I'm encouraged to get glimpses of so many good looking paintings, including yours, Celeste!

Love your plein air plus the accompanying photos.
I see you're using 5x7 hard boards. How do ya like 'em? I''ve been using them for several years and think they're great. Occasionally I'll go back and use a canvas panel or stretched canvas for a different look.
