An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
Entering a Daizu village and having several buckets of water suddenly thrown over you (a form of friendly welcome during their "pour water" festival apparently!), then sheltering from torrential rain in a shrine just outside the village gates where the ghosts go to sleep at night, while the village children teach you their local dances, was all part of the experience of teaching the kids art at Longlin village in Xishuangbanna, China.…Continue

I'm a bit of a fanatic and tend to do things to the extreme, good or bad, it's just my personality. Of course painting is one of those things, I'm obsessed with it—just want to be…Continue
JEANEAN’S TIPS ON TRAVELLING WITH ART SUPPLIES, OIL PAINTS
I carry an empty half-sized french easel in a nylon backpack that also holds my sketchbook and a few pencils. I have a canvas satchel or a rolling backpack that holds panels and pre-cut flat pieces of linen that I carry in a makeshift portfolio out of thin foamcore. I tape the piece of linen to the backside of the board when I…Continue

Will be in Savannah GA Feb 24 - Mar 7,2015. Would like to hear from anyone who would suggest a few good locations to paint en plain air in the area.
It's what I call stick season here in Georgia. We get very little snow of course and by this time the leaves have all fallen. I can say that the green pine trees help here as apposed to the north east where whenever I visit in the…Continue

This is by way of an apology. I stumbled across this site while researching something else, and happen to know one of your members, so signed up to take a better look. I am not an artist, I am an outdoor photographer, thus I really do not belong here. I have no idea how to "unsubscribe", so I'm hoping your web master will remove all evidence of my trespassing.
Once again, I apologize....

It has been over a year since I did my last Blog Post about how I broke through my dry spell... well not so fast. It would seem, with some embarrassment, that I am in an extended dry spell. I guess it was bound to happen, as my health got worse and I am stuck with oxygen bottles to lug around. But you say what? You thought I took an oxygen machine with me to Ireland a few years back, it's true. But my breathing was not as bad as it is today. I am getting winded just walking to the bathroom.…Continue
First I recommend you make your photo 185 pixels square and save as a .jpeg, .png or .gif file. If the photo is not square you can upload it and crop in the program but make sure the size is under 10MB. Be patient if your photo is big it may take some time to load.
Put it on your desktop or in a file on your hard drive you can find. Then go to "My Page" and hover over the top of the photo. It will say "Change Photo". Click on it and it…Continue
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…Continue
