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.
I kinda got a little busy helping a baby out of the lake when I was painting today, but I wanted to share photos of Julie Riker and Mary Beth Brath from today at the lake.
More later when I get my painting finished. I'll go back Saturday or the next nice day to finish it.
