Open Air Arts
I made a slide show of my experience so far at the Open Air Arts event in Melrose, FL. I made an old fashion animated gif and do not know how to post it here. It is too late at night to figure out new tricks so please see my web page.
I am having fun on my plein air painting adventure but I am exhausted. I also fully intended to paint in my abstract style but I guess I am too close to the subject matter. Too close physically and mentally. For my abstracts I do a series of quick sketches and become removed from the subject matter before beginning a painting.
