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.
Last thoughts on winter...A call for any interested SVPAP members went out last summer to exhibit winter landscapes at the Historic Harrisburg Association (HHA). Several members participated. This is just a sampling of paintings from the show. All of the work was terrific.The exhibit was well received during the Candlelight Tour and throughout the winter months. Thank you to HHA.
