“On the Shores of the Big Sioux River” 8×10″
I attended a Plein Air Outing at Pointer’s Ridge near Sioux Falls, SD. I would like to do further studies of this subject, and do a bigger painting. I enjoyed meeting with my painting buddies again.

This weekend we had a Frost Festival in our town which included a Plein Air event. It was a bit gloomy but we still had snow on the ground.
My daughter and I painted with artists in our area, inside the club house at the Dakota Nature Park, where we had a nice view of frozen ponds and bridges to paint our pictures. It was a fun day for all of us! We got our paintings done before lunch and met everyone for BBQ.
This is by Liz Bezesky, watercolor on yupo paper.
I went to our Nature Park to do a little plein air watercolor painting. I wanted to steak out the locations for our Frost Fest Plein Air Outing this weekend. I will probably do an acrylic painting on Saturday. It will be nice this weekend too, but hopefully the snow won’t be all melted.

This weekend we had a Paint Out at the Laura Ingalls Wilder Homestead. The weather was good, and I found a nice place in the shade. I would have liked some interesting clouds to paint but I worked with what was there. I did a synopsis of the terrain.
I made friends with a colt named Cinnamon, who begged for attention, tried to play with my stuff, and then she would charged around me, and settle in for a nap, each time moving closer until she was sleeping at my ankles.
We had over 60 artists in attendance. They kept us fed and we had live music in the evening. On Sunday we had an exhibit at the new Cultural Center in De Smet, SD. Quite unusual to have a building like that in such a small town.
