Plein Air Painting
Last month my dad, my sister Cass, and I participated in Thanksgiving Point's first annual Plein Air Festival.
We had so much fun. Which I measure by time spent and amount of gusto to our giggling. I love sharing painting with them. They are great mentors and teachers. I am so lucky to have them around!
I titled my piece "Pastiche Bo Peep." Pastiche is a term for an artistic piece consisting wholly or chiefly of motifs or techniques borrowed from one or more sources. An apt word to describe what I felt I was doing - imitating a plein air painter with a Bouguereau-like figure. At the end there was a silent auction and we all sold our pieces. Not bad for a few days work.
