Plein Air in the Evening at Pinchot State Park by Mary Beth Brath
On May 29th, our family went to the lake to canoe and explore. When we went to unload, we realized we forgot the oars. My husband headed back home, the boys played and fished and I set up my easel OF COURSE.
I finished most of the painting before my husband returned - about 30 minutes - I was in my own race against time.
I came back to shore with my canoe a little before dark so I could finish the painting. My son took a picture of me at the easel. The next morning, I cleaned up the colors in the water and called it complete.
This is the third painting of this same area. All are different. One sold last year, one is in my home and this one will go out to one of my galleries.
