Plein Air

I was able to spend the last couple of weeks painting plein air and boy am I glad to be back in the studio. Don't get me wrong, I had a good time painting flowers at the Thanksgiving Point show, but it took several paintings to feel like I was painting anything worthwhile. This last weekend, Gary and I were able to participate in another plein air festival. This one happened to be up in Midway / Heber and all I can say is that it was beautiful. I actually was satisfied with the work that I produced and let's be honest, I'm pretty darn lucky to go painting with a pro like Gary. The upside is that he is so down to earth and we get along so well. The downside is that everything that I produce looks incredibly amateur in comparison to his. I was seriously exhausted by the end of it all. The controlled temperature and controlled lighting of the studio was just such a nice environment to get back to. I'll post pix as soon as I upload them.
