Above is a sampling of the plein air work I have been doing over the last 9 months. I am still trying to get into some sort of blogging rhythm that synchronizes the painting, photographing, uploading, cropping, and posting routine. I had this idea that I would post them as I paint them... doing it this way is a little like drinking from a fire hose. :)

Laurel, just found your blog through Bill's which I also just found. Though I have no idea what "Plein Air" means, I love your Big Bend pieces. And the picture of you painting in that big sombrero hat is the picture of a woman in her element. Well done.

Hi Laurel: I just found Bill's blog by chance and then yours. I love the paintings you share to us! They're "powerful"!

You blogger you! I am so proud. We've, or I should say I, have been thinking about going this route as well. I think it is a great decision and hope it works out for you! You should check out the magazine "Artful Blogging" from Somerset Studios! Love the new paintings. I especially love one of them...hmmmm-mmmm...I can't remember the title! It is one that has some trees that kind of look like the shape of cypress. I do love the shape of the old cypress trees in SF around the Legion of Honor and Lake Merced. Anyways, congratulations! Love it!
