Ohio Plein Air Painting Workshop

Ruth Ann's Garden, 9x12, oil

I just finished up a two-day, oil-only plein air painting workshop in Lima, Ohio.  It's hard to believe, but in this meteorologically-busy spring season, we had two days of really excellent weather.   Comfortable temperature and humidity, plenty of sun, and no bugs.  We all remarked that plein air painting doesn't get any better than this!

Last year we painted barns; this year, we focused on one of Lima's beautiful city parks.  This one had trees, water, flowers - everything you could ask for.   (We were even interviewed and taped by the local paparazzi, the local newspaper and TV station.)  I did a garden painting plus a tree painting demonstration of a shagbark hickory.  Here are some photos to show you a bit of the workshop.

Now we are on our way home.  We still have about 2000 miles to go, and we'll include one family visit in Vermont.  Most likely, my next post will be from Campobello Island.  We can't wait to get there!

We stopped at Kewpee's for dinner
