I find this piece inviting me in.....probably to sit on one of those boats with my feet up, rocking with the waves, enjoying a beer and swapping fish tales.....of which I only have three.
Even though it hasn't been formally announced, there will be a plein air workshop at the end of the month AND it will be held at the Bloedel Reserve. What a place to be able to paint! In the past it was rare for it to be open even for sketching but times are changing and plein air painters are no longer the suspect individuals they seem to be.
Now that reminds me that Scott Burdick did a short movie on the police of Barcelona who kick painters off the street. Evidently other nefarious activities are sanctioned but moving a brush on a canvas just steps over the line for the city fathers. You can find it on his website.
Anyway, if you are interested in joining me for some plein air fun, give Martha at the Winslow Art Center a call and get signed up before it fills.
For the next few posts I'm going to be digging into paintings that I never got around showing here. They are all plein air....just to get you in the mood.
