Disappearing Creek - Adirondack Trip

Disappearing Creek, L. Daniel, 12 x 12


One afternoon, all the painters who came to the Adirondack event gathered to paint at the Saranac Gun Club AND to pose for a group photo. We lined up in this field and painted together until the appointed time for the photo "op". It was a memorable event - this many plein air painters all in one place is rare indeed! (Normally we all like our privacy.) As for our subject matter... this is actually the Saranac River though it looked more like a creek in this location... hence the title.



Here we all are, hard at work... 


See all the easels lined up in the background??

Love this one and the format is perfect to make those clouds just so incredibly beautiful against the soft disappearing creek. Beautiful color harmony and can just imagine the feeling of awe with you all there together. Powerful!

Wow, now that's a big group. Nice series of paintings.

Laurel I see your in the Buchannan Gallery. I was on there webpage and saw there photo's cycling through and up popped a painting that looked familliar and thought that must be Laurel Daniel and yep it sure is! I'm going to be at the E Street Gallery showing some of my Girls on the Beach series paintings. Are you going to be around?
