I enjoyed participating in Leland Air again this year, a plein air event for artists on Memorial Day weekend. Because I’m apparently a bit crazy, I challenged myself to complete two 30″ x 40″ paintings in a matter of a few hours. This is the first one. I have since made a couple minor changes to it in my studio, being careful not to tamper with the sense of untamed immediacy which accompanies a painting of this size, completed on site in less than 90 minutes.
The second painting of the day was sold at the evening reception to a wonderful collector whom I was privileged to meet at last year’s event.
