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.

Beautiful Sunday in the PA Countryside. Thank you to Eric and Nancy Olsen and Windmill Creek Farm, for a wonderful afternoon of painting, food, Zinnias and Zin! I got there a little late and the food and company were so wonderful that I had just a little time to actually paint, but I just couldn't resist these wonderful sunflowers!
