30 Paintings in 30 Days – Still painting!

Well, it’s 10 days in, and I’ve been fairly productive, finishing several paintings this week. Last week our plein air group met at a park between Albany and Corvallis — Hyak park. I had a slow morning, and didn’t arrive until 10:30. Lucky me, it had just poured rain moments before I parked, and sparkling diamond drips streamed from the tall trees, but the sun was out so I was feeling optimistic. Four other painters were still there, most had fled with the downpour, so I joined two down along the river, and we went to work. Several more showers tried to chase us all away – but two of us were still there when we quit at noon — dodging another rain shower… After the long hot, dry summer, I was really enjoying the rain, and now with temps in the 90’s predicted for the next couple of days, as a native Oregonian, I’m wishing for MORE RAIN!

Below you can see two of my painting pals, scoping out the river view. That’s where we 3 ended up painting.
