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.

I’m practicing my trees. We will be moving to an area with more hills and trees. Cincinnati here I come! This is why my blog has been quiet, moving is too much work!

Although I’m happy with the painting, I want to have thicker paint like some of my other works. I did an experiment of leaving a dollop of each for 15 hours prior to adding the paint to my pallette although it was thicker, it was not thick enough to my liking. I will try leaving out longer before adding it. If I can find the right amount of time, it’s just a matter of planning ahead.
