Lots of paint-outs!

Yesterday I went painting with two friends in South Meadows area of Reno.  We had a great view and we plan to come back.  be sure to check  for more details if you would like to attend.  Below is my painting - for once I was really happy how my painting came out!

8 x 10 oil on panel
About a week ago I joined Sierra Pastel Society's spring paint-out.  It was held at a ranch near Auburn, Calif.  For a high desert resident - it was WONDERFUL to see green-green-green!

This painting of mine above needs more work.....

The week prior, I joined the Greater Sacramento and Sierra Chapter of the California Art Club's paint-out in Loomis, Calif. at the Flower Farm.

WOW! Thank you, Carolyn, for sharing with us your travels, new WONDERFUL paintings and photo-stories!

I love your oil painting with mountains, looks so strong! I love big shapes and colours!
Also, your violets and softness in pastel :)

Beautiful views, GREEN grass and some trees are in green too. (Behind my window it is a sun, but all in white snow and I miss leaves and spring!)

Inspiration and great time for you and your team in plein-air! ;)
