More Plein Air Adventures in 2012

'Afternoon Light' 8x10 pastel ©Karen Margulis
More Plein air painting is one of my goals for 2012 and this will be the year to really focus on painting more outside and trying to work more with oils. I have a great incentive now since I decided last night to go to the 1st Plein Air Convention this April in Las Vegas. I will be rooming with my friend Barbara Jaenicke, who is an excellent artist. We will spend some extra painting time after the convention. This convention will be the largest gathering of plein air artists ever and the roster of artists who will be teaching and sharing is amazing. Visit the Plein Air Convention site to read more about it. I wasn't planning on going since it will be a busy year with wedding plans for my son, but with Barbara's little nudge I knew this was an opportunity not to be missed. Who else is planning to go?
Today's painting is a plein air study I did at Grand Teton National Park when we stayed at the Moulton Ranch. What a fantastic experience!

I just registered for that convention 2 days ago! Perhaps I'll 'meet' you there!
