Tucson Sunset Painting   8″x10″ oil up for auction starting at $200. To bid, click HERE.

The last few days I have been in Tucson at the 2016 Plein Air Convention. It was great, lots of demos, vendors with products and lots of friends. It feels like one big reunion. I find it soooo inspiring and ready to paint and tackle the world. It feels like a renewal.

I painted this as a demo at the Gamblin booth. The reaction was great. Thank you everyone for your kind comments. There were some great painters there. To name just a few: Bill Anton (I’ve admired him for a long time), Matt Smith (who I have taken a workshop from years ago), Jove Wang (what a treat to watch his method of painting), Kathryn Stats, and Aline Ordman (I’ve wanted to meet her for a long time).

There were lots of facebook friends to put a face to and old friends too. It was a good week painting for me. I really felt like I was back in the game. I really needed this to help start the new year for me.

I have posted (or will be posting) photos that I took during the Plein Air Convention on my blog at Painting Workshops Online.

Here are some of the plein air paintings from this week.
