SVPAP members participate in Plein Air Chincoteague

      Pat and I spent the last week painting on Chincoteague Island, VA as part of their annual Plein Air event.  45 artists painted throughout the week and on Saturday night they held an exhibit/sale of the finished work.  Despite the heavy rains and flooding in Central PA, we were blessed with great weather all week - even the one day of drizzly mist led to some wonderful atmospheric paintings.  There are so many painting possiblities on both Chincoteague Island and the wildlife refuge on Assateague, from houses and historic sites, boats and marinas, marsh, beach, bay, and ocean.  Such a beautiful place to visit.

I have about a weeks worth of blogging material on each of these paintings, so I will be posting that later.
