"Picnic at Pinchot" By Debra Tritt Kreiger

Acrylic Painting on canvas 10"x8"

This painting was started plein air and finished in my studio. The Susquehanna Valley Plein Air painters hosted painting and a picnic at Pinchot Park this year. It was a bit breezy and cool and I was really happy when the sun came out. Sue made some wonderful coffee and we all shared some great food! Artist are also great cooks! If you look closely you can see our chef!

This painting along with others can be seen at the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters Exhibit at the Mechanicburg Art Center December 10th - January 13. Reception Saturday Dec 10 from 1 to 3pm.

I really like that fall tree next to the greenish-blue roof of the pavillion - the colors just sing!
Beautiful painting, Deb!

So nice, Deb. Is that me behind that pole?

Not only is this a terrific painting but it is refreshing that you chose to paint the picnic set up while everyone else was looking out in other directions toward the landscape. This is a great documentation of the day. I am looking forward to seeing it in person at the show.
