STEMS Plein Air Event

The STEMS Plein Air Painting Event just wrapped up. I went out painting almost every day and created at least 14 paintings. That doesn’t mean I’m displaying all 14. Lots of days I did some stinkers or just never finished them. But ALL were great learning experiences. Here are some that I’m willing to post.

Giverny in Kansas is a 3 day plein air. It is larger, more finished than most plein air works, but it was fun to do. I did two smaller plein air paintings of this view. The first two were unsuccessful paintings, but successful studies for this one.
