It's been a while since we painted at Vilas but I thought I'd post how my painting that I started there ended up after additional work. I almost tossed my (pretty rough) initial painting but am now glad I stuck with it. And this is why I love oil paint, you can paint over and over again.

Marla Brenner very generously hosted a pot luck for the group and provided some great cheeses to sample; along with the painters contributions it was quite a spread for the hungry painters. Thank you, Marla!! A couple painters worked with the view from Marla's porch which was stunning. It has to be one of the best views to be had anywhere in the state. We also enjoyed the works by Marla and other painters that she has collected; there was much to be inspired by. It was a great opportunity to meet more painters and learn more about art and making it from such an accomplished group. What an ideal way to celebrate plein air painting in summer!

We had a very enjoyable outing this morning at Cherokee and I believe it was the best attended outing we've ever had. Maybe because of the pot luck lunch afterwards. Here is a photo of Gretchen and Jan Feyzi checking out painting sites. The morning was a bit hazy with sun coming in and out with beautiful clouds. And the large cottonwood trees there have such fine noble shapes. A great day to paint.
