Plein Air Today

 The Arboretum Today
plein air  6x8 oil on canvas panel

We are so fortunate, Mother Nature smiled on us , it was a magnificent
fall day today.  I chose this building, a garage.  I didn't capture all of
the beauty of the architecture, maybe next time.
I didn't really want it to be just about the building, because it is located
along the river walk.  So overwhelming when painting outdoors.
But it is the best way to spend a lovely fall morning.


  1. This is beautifully painted, Joan! Like you said...we have to take advantage of these beautiful Fall days.... The Arboretum is definitely the perfect place to paint!

  2. Thank you my friend, looking out my window and it's another lovely day. Will just sit outside for awhile and do some sketching. Hope all is well with you and yours.

  3. Interesting building with its fine architecture. You are certainly capturing the loveliness of fall in your paintings. Nice work Joanie!
