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.
YELLOW BREECHES ALONG McCORMICK ROAD An Original Pastel Painting by Clare Klaum
Two weeks ago a few of us had a paint out along McCormick road on a beautiful sunny Saturday. I was finally able to get back to my painting to finish it. It was a fun day and so much activity there. It is a very popular spot for kayaking, wading, fishing and just enjoying the view. This was also my daughters favorite spot when she was in High School to just get away and have a quiet moment.
