Ohio RIver Valley

Spring is finally making it's way to Ohio. A friendly couple in East Liverpool invited our Plein Air group to paint on their hilltop overlooking the beautiful Ohio river. Wind & rain storms would pass through, so we had to hold onto our easels, as well as blot the water from our pochade boxes. But it was all manageable. My biggest problem was that I left my easel at home. I attached my canvas covered board to my cart with a bungee cord. Wasn't easy to work with, but I did manage. I now like the result!

Old Train Depot

Our Plein Air group met to paint at the old East Palestine Taggert Street train depot last week. It was one of the nicest days we have had this year. Perfect to paint outdoor landscapes!

Hoyt Entry

A Demo painted, on a rainy afternoon, under cover of The Hoyt Museum porch. The ancient Beech tree made a fascinating study.
