The sun moves, shadows change; there is only a short period of time that an artist has to capture the shifts of light and color when painting outdoors - but it is this very desire to distill the energy and freshness of nature that drives the plein air painter. Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters was formed to bring together artists who share this passion.
Morning's Delight - Acrylic Plein Aire Floral Impressionistic Landscape by Pennsylvania Daily Painter Pat Koscienski
Morning's Delight 12" x 6" Acrylic on canvas
This painting was painted plein air at Simpson Park, Bowmansdale, PA. It was a lovely morning, but early in the spring season with not much to zero in on. Glad I found this scene to my delight. This painting is currently on exhibit at the New Cumberland Library, 1 Benjamin Plaza, New Cumberland, PA, for the month of May, along with 14 other artists from SVPAP...Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters.
