This blog will reflect on my very first time out with the Plein Air Painters. In the Spring of '07 in a park overlooking a bay I chose my location and began to set up my new French easel. Feeling open to public scrutiny I got out my palette of fresh oil paint and after taking a few photos of the scenery and fellow painters with my new digital camera, I proceeded to paint my first oil painting outside in the open air. Against all odds, this painting "Plein Air Morning" also was my first to exhibit in a juried show in a gallery! From there it became my first painting to sell. So many memories, and I hear it is living somewhere in Georgia now.
