Hard to believe its already mid August. Been busy with the new house and the new Painting group, Lower Hudson Valley Plein Air Painters, phew thats a mouth full. LHVPAP for short. There’s a group starting up out of the Garrison Art Center too calling themselves the Hudson Highland Painters, has a nice ring to it. So as may be surmised, I’ve been painting outside a bit. There are so many wonderful place to paint here in the Hudson Valley of NY and one great thing about these groups is that we get exposed to new locations and get to meet up with different artists. We are a tribe of painting warriors, sharing war stories, information, locations and just laughs. Getting some good painting time on the clock, just keep painting they say. Well have a look at the Plein Air tab for some new paintings I put up and lets hope summer lasts longer then my paint tubes.
