Oscar Scherer State Park

Painting Outside

Nothing comes close to painting outside... sheer pleasure!  Artists from the Light Chasers Plein Air group circled the lake with easels and brushes this morning.  Wonderful feeling painting along with other enthusiastic souls while groups of bird watchers and hikers passed by chattering encouraging words.

A little white egret poked around in the reeds just at the right moment to be painted in.  Happy with this painting and all it's imperfections.  No fiddling or fussing when I got home.

Thanks, Cory! Wish I had known you were there. Your painting looks terrific as usual. Saw it on FB.
