Garden Gate

Painting plein aire is another new experience for me, but Alamance County has a wonderful group of outdoor painters that are very supportive and encouraging of beginners. This watercolor was done during one of their all day "Paint Outs" at Cedar Cliff Farm in the Piedmont area of North Carolina - an incredibally beautiful setting. The owners have filled their own lives with art and a landscape that screams to be painted!


  1. Connie, I think you did a wonderful job painting en plein aire! I myself am still building up to that point. Anyway, I found your blog from Cathy Johnson's alumni Yahoo group. It's great that you have a supportive art group where you live!

  2. I REMEMBER THIS! I REMEMBER THIS!! SUPER SUPER JOB!!!!! I did one of this same gate too -- oh I wish we had painted together that day!
