e, Dean Hartung, for giving a weekend workshop on plein air painting. We went upstate and it was my first time painting outdoors . I bought special plein air easel. It turned out to be a clumsy, cumbersome wood easel and I spent more time fussing with it than painting. It tipped over in the wind and sent all my supplies into the Hudson River. Never buy something that looks good at a cheap price. I painted and cried every time the easel tipped over. And putting wet canvas on it was a challenge. A Monet moment it wasn’t
in spite of all this I came home with these lovelies!
