Last weekend the annual Plein Air Festival was held at the National Museum of Wildlife Art here in Jackson Hole,. Conditions were beautiful, but a bit challenging – the sun was bright and the wind was brisk, which dried my puddles of paint to the extent that I changed directions,expectations, and previous planning as the painting progressed. A bug even tried to do the backstroke on my surface, but since my nature and my style is spontaneous, I was pleased with the final result. 4 hours from start to finish, and it sold at the auction following the “paint out”.
