It was a very fortunate thing that we got outside to paint in September because October has been a VERY soggy affair. I only had the opportunity to paint in a pumpkin patch twice this year. How disappointing!
When the weather is fine my wonderful students let me drag them into the field to paint - literally. We were painting in a field. :) I enjoyed the view so much I stayed after class to paint it myself. Thank you to the Bailey family for always being so gracious about us painting on their farm. Also, a huge thank you to my students for taking on the plein air challenge.
Here's a little video of our experience:

Oh my, I've gotten rusty on blog posting. I have so much to share that I get overwhelmed and don't share anything at all. Sad, really. Do you ever have something like that happen to you? The solution is to start simple I'm told. So this is one of my favorite rose paintings of the year. It sold pretty quickly at the Coupeville Arts Festival. I was sad to see it go and almost refused to sell it to the nice young lady who said it was calling to her. Okay I'm not that heartless. I think it went to a good home.
