I enjoyed a Fall Retreat with 13 other artists on the weekend of October 2-6, 2013 as we “painted with purpose.” Each evening during our wine and cheese breaks, we would talk about the day’s painting out in the beautiful scenery of the woods near the Kettle-Moraine State Park. We had two days of beautiful and sunny weather to paint the fall colors; then we adapted to the two other days of rain and fog. Painting in a tent and then looking out from one of the garages all day made for interesting shared moments with the other artists. Below you see the four paintings I completed “en plein air” [on location] during the retreat.
“Birches in the Fall,” 2013, 10x8inches, oil on board.
