Give Me Liberty

Liberty - 8" x 10" - oil
Plein Air

The painting above came from a great day of plein air painting at Liberty Presbyterian Church in Delaware, Ohio with the Ohio Plein Air group.  When I go out with the group I really never know just what I'm going to paint.  Some days I'm looking for a challenge and other days I'm just looking for a small victory.  When I drove up to the church I had every intention of painting the church, which is actually an authentic barn, but I was soon informed that there was a trail.  Shortly afterwards found a lovely little pond in an opening.  The view was quite intimidating at first but once I settled in it was off to the races.  

I just want to remind everyone of my upcoming online show at the Glave Kocen Gallery entitled "I've Been There."  There will be several new pieces based on my travels this summer.  I think there's a little something for everyone.  The show is exclusively online and will run from September 3rd to the 28th.  Log on and enjoy the view.

That is very pretty :) I love how you've caputured the movement of the water and the colours you've used in the pond.

Thank you Amatheya and Dawn! Color is always a work in progress for me but I'm fairly pleased with the pond and overall mood.

You've captured that tranquil feeling! I love that you included the photo of the painting on the easel in the actual environment, too.

Thanks Kerri! I've had a few people ask me what exactly is plein air painting? So I thought it would be helpful to just include a pic to help illustrate it.
