This was a lovely day to paint on site. Some days everything comes together as if someone else is doing the painting. Other days are not so easy! This painting was shown in Schmucker Hall of the Gettysburg College Campus last week.

Preparing Canvas for Gettysburg Festival

I am preparing canvases for the Gettysburg Festival. This year I will be involved in both the Main and the Fringe Festivals. Since I will be plein air painting for about 10 days, I need to have many supports ready to go. It is an intense week, but a great challange.
