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 painted at the Harrisburg Symphony Show House on Saturday with my fellow Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters. What a wonderful day. I chose an old willow tree with lots of character! This will be on display and for sale in the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters Gallery, located on the 2nd floor of the barn on the show house grounds.
