This was a busy weekend for me. It was the weekend of the PALS Plein Air Limner Society's 4th Annual Painting Long Island Show. This is the plain air group that I paint with every Tuesday morning. We usually paint beginning in April and continue until the beginning of December if the nice weather lasts. Here is our invitation.
Of course Saturday was snowy and cold here on Long Island and very few people stopped by, but we made up for it today when we had a lot of visitors...and quite a few people who purchased paintings, cards, etc.
I took a few photos of the paintings.
This wall is PALS On the Go and the work was done by some of the artists while they were traveling or vacationing. I have one hanging from Venice, one from Maine, one from Ireland, and one from France.
Some of the paintings below were done completely on location, some finished in the studio, and some done completely in the studio from references from our locations. We painted at some wonderful places this year!
Here is a photo of most of us that were at the gallery today for the show. From left to right are Liz, Jeanne, Chris, Susan, Marlene, Laurie, Rita, Rosamaria, Mary, Laurie, and me.
