Plein Air show May 17


Plein Air Show May 17, 6 - 8 p.m. at Gallery 104, LaGrange, KY.

Now you have all the details, let me give you the scoop.

For those of you who might not be familiar with plein air paintings,
its painting outside in the open air on site.

The goal, aside from being outside and enjoying the day,
is to see all the details of a particular scene,
all the lights and shadows,
all the colors and shades,
and how they all affect each other.

It's a very challenging artform,
contending with the wind has been difficult for me,
but it's also a lot of fun.

Most of the paintings in this show will probably be from recognizable places
in and or near Oldham County, KY.

Awards are usually given out around 7 p.m.

And I'm not above bribing you with food,
so there will be refreshments.

Come and give it a look.

Feel free to spread this invite around.

About Me

I'm a nature artist and I love to paint old barns, rivers and lakes, trees and fence rows. I work almost daily trying to improve my art and all that entails. I try to learn all I can from others and from the earth itself by being aware of all God has created and its beauty. You can purchase paintings by contacting me at slgraves6@gmail.com. You can also purchase through my gallery website at www.riverrungallery.com . Thank you so much for stopping by.
