What I Did Last Summer Part 2

I went an Artist Retreat at Pointer’s Ridge in late June. We painted in Plein Air along the Big Sioux River. 8×10” Acrylic on Canvas Board.

I did a portrait of an old Dutch Elm stump, and had some fun with it! 9×12” Acrylic on Canvas Board.

Here is the quaint little A-frame we stayed in.

Mariemont Plein Air Outing

This weekend I went to my first Cincinnati Paint Out.

The setting was a historic German Town sponsored by the Woman’s Art Club. This group was founded in 1892, originally because the Cincinnati Art Club excluded Woman. Today neither club excludes genders.


I chose to paint at the Mariemont Concourse, which overlooks the Ohio River Valley. I started early in the day, and finished in 3 hours, fortunately before the heat of the afternoon.


It was a great experience!


There were about 60 artists attending, who were friendly and welcoming.


Here I am with my painting that SOLD.


10×20″ Acrylic on Canvas with 1.5″ painted gallery wrap edges.

“What I Did Last Summer” Part 1

This summer I’ve been in transition, moving from South Dakota to the Cincinnati area. I have since completeted the move and I want to recap on my blog what I managed to squeeze in my last summer in South Dakota. This is a painting I did at a Paint Out in Oakwood State Park. Acrylic on a Canvas Panel, 8″x10″.

These are the wonderful people who participated at the Plein Air Outing. I miss you all!
