The next afternoon we drove to Beaver Creek to paint a snow scene. Well, Jody had left, but my sister Becky, Michelle, and I were on a roll. What fun to have painting companions again!

Brown Eggs

After the Butler Museum Paint-in two artist friends came home with us. They had come a couple hundred miles to participate. We gathered in the studio, painted a still life and chatted until after midnight. They are so much fun to have over. There is something about being with other artists that feels comfortable. Michelle has been here before and feels like a close sister, we travel to places together just to paint.

Butler Institute of American Art

This past Saturday the Ohio Plein Air Society asked me to host a "paint-in" at the Butler Art Museum in Youngstown. This is an oportunity to study the master painters, besides there are fewer days we want to paint outside in below zero wind chill. Below is the painting I chose.
