Plein Air Brandywine Valley

I had a busy week painting in the Plein Air Brandywine Valley last week! I also hosted two visiting artists in my home, my friends Mary Monk and Laura Fischer Saxon from New Orleans.

 I painted from sunrise to sunset during the 4-day event, and finished 10 paintings. Each day, artists were allowed to choose from a list of 4 or 5 locations in the Brandywine valley area. The locations are different each day, and always full of gorgeous sites scenery. Many are vast private farms and estates, and some are more public like museums, gardens, or towns. This year, I painted the main street of Marshallton, Meyer's farm in Kennett, Winterthur, and Coverdale Farm. All the paintings were exhibited the following weekend at Winterthur, with a portion of the sales benefiting the Children's Beach House charity.
