It was so windy at Dallas Mountain Ranch today, I opted to forgo the tripod and paint from the passenger side of the truck. A great adventure. To see all of the photos from today (Day one of Pacific NW Plein Air 2014) go HERE.

(My computer crashed, and I have no access to photoshop--so my colors will be a little off until I get some image software).

That looks rather a comfortable set up to my mind, Celeste! Way to improvise!! Love the painting you produced of Mt. Hood too!! Wish you were here...I could use a good dose of IHOP with one of my besties!

Great results! I've painted in the car also-inclement weather mostly being the reason. Sometimes it is just too cold or too windy:)

You painted these mountains so beautifully, Celeste...Wonderful work!


Wow...I think I need to visit you in your area. There is so much beauty there. I admire you taking on this challenge yet again. I have had a very intense last twelve months painting year. To take on the challenge again for me would have pushed me over the edge of sanity.

Hello Celeste!
Where do I begin? So much great art! So very little time to write all I want to say! I so love your painting style. I know "painterly" sounds trite to man but your work to me is so very painterly! I love the way you handle the medium!
I will try to catch up on the many posts I missed!
Always a thrill to visit your great blog!
Take care.
