Dramatic landscapes are easiest.

I notice that I always am more inspired by a dramatic landscape.  Usually the painting comes out so that I like it.  Perhaps it's because I was so involved emotionally and I some how managed to…Continue

"Spring or Fall is good, but summer is just a little warmer.  So it really doesn't matter to me.  I haven't planned out my 2015 plein air events because some of the ones I want to attend haven't posted their dates yet.…"

9x12" plein air watercolor done on school grade paper and paints because I got so inspired by the excellent artwork at RMCC Plein Air Event in Estes Park - I just had to paint. They have some really weird rocks in Estes Park CO. I'm into rocks these…

Estes Park CO - Rocky Mountain Centennial Celebration Plein Air Event 2014

In researching where to plein air next year I came across the RMCCPA event in Estes Park CO.  I booked a flight out of Spokane to Denver just to see the artwork of the Show.  It was too late to attend the painting event, but I have watched some of the artists online and I admire their work.  Spokane doesn't have a plein air group and none of my students are interested - so since Don Maier and Nikolai Kraneis came to paint with me - I have to find good plein air artists where I can.  And I…

Pushing past former limits

I find it interesting how much goes on inside my head when I paint outdoors.  The area around me could be on fire and I wouldn't even notice because of all the inner dynamics.  I'm not sure these dynamics are limited to just my "mind" either.

I get swept up in the complete experience of expressing my impression of the subject - it is almost a waking dream state.  It has it's own rythm.  I start with trepidation and excitement.  I expect a struggle and I work at engaging in the…

Plein Air Wheely carries everything effortlessly in one trip

I take all my plein air equipment anywhere, easily, all in one trip.  I just roll it along in my Plein Air Wheely.

Everything I need goes with me.  No more trips back and forth to the van!   Lightweight, compact and sturdy, it loads into vehicles readily.     

Dirt trails, cobblestone paths, garden gravel, boggy lawns - nothing keeps me from getting to the right spot with all my equipment: chair, umbrella,…

How nice to be featured with these artists. I love their work. My watercolor looks cold and scraggly next to the bright colors in their oil paintings, but heck, it was a winter day! I look forward to using my new plein air easel when the temperature gets up above 6 degrees again. Anyone want to send me South so I can paint? Chuckle. You never know. They say you get what you negotiate for......tee hee. Happy painting you southern plein air artists! I'm with you in spirit anyway.

Thanks Lynne
I have a fondness for those old buildings like your Blue Stem Barn.
They have that haunting sense of history and of days gone by.
I'm in Upper Kittitas County. Snow country.

Lynne,
Most of my plein air paintings have sold. They are small ones. I frequently forget to photograph the paintings. I know, that is not a good thing. Life just gets soooo busy. I will go to the HCA gallery this afternoon and try to remember to get pictures of the plein air paintings hanging there.
My husband is disabled so I seldom get too far from home for too long. I would like to spend a day this Spring/Summer painting around the Dry Falls area. What do you think we could arrange someting and paint there together? Do you have any Middle Ground ideas?
At 1:02pm on December 19, 2009, Ginger Stogdell said…
Yes, by all means lets include Greg and any other artist who wants to join in. I can ask our Fresh Air Friday group (of 3 to 4 and it dosn't have to always be on a Friday for us), and we can make a painting feast of it.

I'd seriously love to paint at Dry Falls and/or on the Columbia or anywhere around there. Just let me know when you have in mind!

Ok Lynne
I downloaded a couple more plein air paintings. Cowboys & Cowgirls,, Lake Cle Elum Winter, and Cooper Lake were sold, but I had taken pictures of them, for a change.

Thanks Lynne,
I rarely get east of the Cascades but love that country. I'd really like to take a painting trip north of Spokane up in the Kettle Falls area.

Lynne,
Hey, looks like we have a group going to Dry Falls this Spring or Summer.
Naomi Gray is also interested as is Gregg Caudell. I kind of favor the Spring because wild flowers are busy doing their blooming best to celebrate the end of winter... Kettle Falls looks good to me too. Sweet!
At 3:49pm on February 4, 2010, Kathryn Townsend said…
Lynn--do you have dates in mind for the Dry Falls paintout? I'd really like to come for a few days.
I look forward to painting with you this Spring in Dry Falls. Please join us Western WA Plein Air Artists there! It will be sunny and warm and the mists won't mess you up!'>>
At 10:27pm on February 4, 2010, Lynne Haines said…
Kathryn, we haven't set a date yet and we can reach Dry Falls easily compared to you. Why don't you give us an idea of when you could make it. Like I said I have a charming cabin in Lincoln WA only an hour or so, away from Dry Falls that you are welcome to stay as my guest. By mid March the weather there is warming up nicely. Pick your date and let me know, I'll see who all else can be there then, okay?
