Plein Air in the Beautiful North Georgia Mountains

'Little Red Tree' 5x7 plein air pastel
What a wonderful day I had painting with the Georgia Outdoor Painters at the beautiful Anderson Creek Retreat in the North Georgia Mountains. We were invited to paint on the grounds as part of the Art of Mountain Living Celebration. There was a Bluegrass band and delicious food and wine. We had a display of our paintings and a silent auction of the paintings we completed in the morning. I sold both of my paintings! It was very cold and windy in the morning and I was bundled in many layers. I set up in the sun and painted five 5x7 tree portraits. I sold a red one and a yellow one and I will post the others tomorrow. It was so great to be able to paint outdoors. I forget how much I enjoy it even the 'extreme' plein air we had this morning! I will post details of the day tomorrow!
