Plein Air Painting - Midway

For Mother's Day my sweet husband gave me some new painting supplies. So, I got to go try them out this morning with my friend Marie. She has a bit more plein air painting experience than I do and agreed to go with me.
We found a nice place by the Provo river. It was good to be out with the birds and fishermen and the sound of the running river.
It was a great Saturday morning with hopefully many more to come this summer.

What a great way to spend the morning. I looked up plein-air. You have broadened by horizons.
What a beautiful spot on the river.
Happy Mother's Day.

Sounds like you are having fun doing something that I have never done. Might have to try it sometime, although it looks hard. Love you, Dad.

I'm lovin' this new genre!! Awesome. Keep it up and I'm relieved that you aren't going to scrap that whole painting. It looks lovely. I'm even envious!!!

BTW my neighbor {when I'm at my Mom's house} is Steve McGinty. He loves plein-air and has done it all over the world.
