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.
This plein air still life was painted as a demo during the "Art at the Straw Bale House" last Sunday. I tweaked it in my studio today. See more artwork at SharonKBennerFineArt.blogspot or www.hanoverareaarts.com/42
