East Central Ohio Plein air group met in Leetonia this week. There were several possible places to paint. I chose the downtown. Many of the lovely old store buildings are closed. Trains pass through the valley often adding to the ambiance. Some townspeople thanked us for preserving the old town in paintings. It is not a ghost town, as many people live here. The bar in the back of downtown seemed busy.
The day was very windy. The canvas is wider than My pochade box so I struggled to paint while holding onto it, until few people helped me to attach it to a telephone pole with bungee cords. What a relief to then step back every so often.
Oil Painting $550
