Plein Air Painting in Alaska and Oregon

It’s been a whirlwind month for me, while painting in Idaho, plein air painting in Alaska, Oregon, & CA. There wasn’t always a lot of painting time while I was gone, because so much of my time was spent visiting family and friends.

I started my month with driving to Sun Valley, Idaho to take a workshop with Michael Lynch. It was a great workshop for me. In addition, the participants were great inspiration and I was glad to get to know them better, Katherine Stats, Jill Carver, Lori McNee, Kathy Reidinger, Suzanne Baker and 12 others. Most of all, I got some pointers that I really needed in my own work. Finally, I will need to spend more time implementing and adding things what I’ve learned to my work.

On to Oregon and Alaska

After Idaho, I drove to Oregon and stayed with family. Then my sister drove me to the Portland airport to fly into Seattle and finally, board the Princess Cruise to the Inland Passage in Alaska so that I could join the Painted Ladies. They organized a group cruise of artists with Larry Seiler and myself as instructors. We taught short 4 hour or so workshops on the ship and did some plein air when we were in port. It was a great time talking art and art business. Below are a few of the paintings from Alaska, which are all 8×10 paintings which are $800 framed.

After Alaska, I went back to Oregon to visit with family and friends and a little painting. I love painting in the Willamette Valley wine country where my parents and sister live. Below is one of the paintings and it will be on it’s way to the American Women Artists Show in the fall.

I still haven’t restarted the auction, due to summer travel and lack of internet in some places. I’m taking off in about a week for another painting trip. Then.yet another at the end of the month. So, August will basically be on the road.
