July 7th Painting and Pot Luck

Some of the morning's art work

More paintings from Cherokee Park

Carol Watkins with Jan Norsetter's  plein air paintings from the park; not only did Jan finish 2 paintings that morning but also framed them!  Talk about productive!  The group appreciated Jan's commentary on her approach to painting those scenes which was very instructive.

Marla's paintings on the porch

Hungry painters

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!
