Yesterday was the kick off to my 3 day plein air workshop that I teach here on the St Croix River. Below are pictures of my hardy painting gang! The weather has been a bit rainy but they are troopers and haven't heard any complaints! I will tell you the COLOR has been incredibly rich with the overcast sky and wet greens! No complaints here! A far cry from where a was one week ago today in Sarasota Florida for my show at M Gallery where it was in the high 90s and humidity of 90%. This is refreshing! One more day to go, what a great group of painters!
