This painting came from the weekend I spent with my critique group on Hood Canal. The day had an ethereal atmosphere. It's interesting how much more appealing the plein air studies can be in comparison to a well planned out studio landscape. They both have their merits but I often prefer the quick on site study. I'm anxious for the weather to warm up a bit so I can do more plein air and photography around my home in Western Washington.

March has been a very rewarding month. The time spent in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Frick was incredible, I still get chills when I think of all of those masterpieces. Such a privilege to get up close to see the actual brushstrokes of a Rembrandt or a Van Dyck.
Then there was the first ever spring POBL retreat at the Hood Canal. What can I say about spending four days surrounded by such creative compassionate intelligent artists. Inspiring!!!
