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.
One of 5 paintings I am exhibiting in the SVPAP 2nd Annual Exhibit. Reception to be help Saturday, Dec. 8, 1-3 p.m. at The Art Center School and Galleries, 18 Artcraft Drive, Mechanicsburg, PA. This painting is called "Sparkling Waters At McKees Half Falls". I painted right on the river bank and looked into the multiple levels of water falling forward into my view. It was quite an experience and I would be glad to tell how this and other paintings came about with using paint and canvas through this past year. All paintings are available for sale and part of all sales go to support The Art School and Galleries. Come out and have a bite to each and discuss how you feel about en plein art.
