Spring!


 18 x 24, oil on linen
My assignment for the painting above was to use a smaller study (below) that was painted on location as my main source of reference, while eliminating unnecessary details like the architectural shape. 
Fun stuff.

Many thanks to the Indiana Plein Air Painters, who hosted master artists
 in a series of weeklong events including workshops, a panel discussion,
 tour of George and Peggy Rapp's art collection, a paint out and gallery exhibit!
All the while being surrounded by Spring's new wardrobe...



Kenn Backhaus demo

And then it was time to dash down to Tennessee and congratulate all the WPSE award winners (see full list here) -  As you can see, it was well attended. Many thanks to Michelle and Helli at the Imagine Gallery for making it an outstanding weekend of events!

Wow! What a fantastic time you must have had! The painting is really pretty, with the lush fields in the foreground stretching up to the horizon. I'm glad the event was well attended. These are great photos too!
