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.
My first painting during the Gettysburg Festival paint out. East Calvary Rd. is off Rt. 116 on the way to Hanover. This section of the battlefield sits off by itself and the road connects to Rt 30. See more work at SharonKBennerFineArt.blogspot or www.hanoverareaarts.com/42.
