Bethesda fountain meltdown
Here is the piece I did today at the Bethesda fountain in Central Park. It was 96 degrees I think. I set up out in the sun and it was really hot. NBC news stopped by and filmed me. The first question they asked was "all of the other artists are set up in the shade, why are you out in the sun. I told them that was where the best view was.
I don't usually think of myself as a plein air one shot painter. This 11 by 14 is an actual plein air painting. It will be in the show and sale at the Cranford, New Jersey event I am attending. I will try to get some pictures of the artists who are involved in that for a future post.
I was happy to see several blog readers stop by;
And below, Stapeliad. Those are both Facebook "handles". I really enjoy meeting the people who read this blog. You all post comments and we chat back and forth, but it is really fun to find out what you look like and who you are.
John Traynor who I have met painted with a time or two was nearby running a workshop, but I didn't get to see him. I am exhausted now and must sleep. Rough day.
