Plein Air Fest at the National Museum of Wildlife Art

posted in: Musings | 0

July 11, 2014  Last month I participated, along with 40 other artists, in the Plein Air Fest at the National Museum of Wildlife Art here in Jackson Hole.  4 hours to splash and pour my way to a finished painting that is immediately framed and entered in the silent auction.  The weather was great – too great.  It was very warm, dry, sunny and a bit breezy so my watercolor puddles dried very fast – I had to work quickly.  I finished one in half the time and started a second, which I was also able to finish.  In this case watching paint dry might have been entertaining after all! Here are two photos (taken in the back of my Subaru to avoid the 18 raindrops that fell from a clear sky.)  I was pleased with both, which is a rare thing for me indeed.  The piece I submitted to the auction,  Wind Beneath Their Wings, did sell, I am happy to report.  A portion of the sale benefits the Museum.
