We have talked about Plein Air painting in general discussions in a lot of the threads on the art forum. Recently it seems... to be in the air! Someone came into our gallery, a visitor from the midwest US as I remember, who mentioned a magazine about plein air painting and an allied website. So I looked the magazine up, haven't seen it myself -
That was a couple of months ago. But just a few weeks ago one of my friends, Linda Mitchell, who I have been meaning to talk about here because she writes an excellent art column in one of our local papers... wrote about a group of our local artists painting en plein air together. I'll give a link for that. She has been writing for the North Coast Journal for a while now and I like virtually all of her columns. I bring this up because I think she is particulary good at just talking about making art, but also to say that I wish more artists would do more columns like hers for their local scenes. I won't give all the links here, will start a new Topic for that, but here's the Plein Air article.
As a2k is not at all about self advertisement, I must put in a disclaimer that our gallery is mentioned (two are and ours may not be the one you guess); that I know virtually all of the people, except one whom I may know and don't remember this minute. Some of these people have and will show with us.
This is not about that but to share the fun, excitement, and enjoyment of plein air painting.
