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.
Boiling Springs is one of our group's favorite locations. I took a ride throughout the town and countryside before settling down by the lake to paint this view of a converted mill. I plan to set up on one of the town's charming streets next time I go there to paint.
