Then I raised a family and went back to art school in 1981. So I sure have taken part in many a painting class, but only a few in "plein air," as the one featured on Sepia Saturday this week, see below.
Here my friend Helen watches Ann Vasilik painting at the White's home in Black Mountain a couple of years ago.
Since I'm living in a beautiful town in North Carolina, and volunteering for an annual event which features touring people's personal gardens, I've seen several artists who paint in the gardens, and they are known as "Plein Air" artists. Their works are then on display at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts following the garden tours.
I'm sharing several of these artists at work today.
Ann Vasilik is one of my favorite artists.

The framed painting was then on display at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts along with other artist's works.

And to honor a woman who stood and persisted in a time when her race had few opportunities, for Black History Month in the US, and because it's a Sepia photo as well...
Busyness is not a reason for not getting other things done. It is an excuse for not claiming your true priorities.
