IMPRESSIONIST DAILY PAINTING
Original oil on canvas
I nearly named this painting “Plein Air Painting of Plein Air Painters Painting en Plein Air.” This is a painting I did on location at the finish of a workshop, showing a few of my students painting at Newport Back Bay wildlife preserve. Foggy atmosphere veiled the cliffs across the bay and created a nice mood.
We had a wonderful time, painted some beautiful pictures and formed great friendships. The artist on the far right is a newspaper columnist; the man next to her is her husband. The man second from left is a successful commercial artist and the woman on the far left is a first-time artist. We always have an interesting mix of people in my workshops and I enjoy meeting and getting to know each of them.
Today’s thought to smile about:
The sweet, clean smell of early morning air
