For the first time, my hometown artist group (Creekside Artists in Clayton, CA) had a Plein Air outing. We set up our chairs and easels near the flower stand at the weekly farmer’s market down a bustling downtown street. The wind was brisk, but the coffee and friendships warmed the heart. It’s nice to see our little town getting more involved with the art scene. A special thanks to Arlene and Alice for putting this all together. Hopefully this is the first of many. Happy painting everyone.
