Farm Stand Plein Air WIP



Trying to get back into the swing of things. Just returned home on Tuesday, great visit with the grandchildren. I began this painting at the Farm Stand , the Tuesday before and still needs lots of tweaking. It's 8x10 acrylic. Roger Bansemer a very gifted artist and is on PBS stations but not in NY. I have purchased his dvds and find them so inspiring. He and his wife travel to historic places in the States and he paints plein air in acrylic. Sarah visits with the local caretakers and is always packed with great historical facts. Roger then paints and returns to his studio for some more great tips. So for now, it's back to work and more studies.

Happy Painting to All.
