Late fall plein air from Frog Hollow Farms, Gallatin, TN.

Have I mentioned that I like painting from life? You just can’t beat the experience.

winter plein air

At long last! Tennessee actually got some real snow. And it actually covered the grass. And it actually hung around for at least a couple of days. Here in Tennessee, weather like this is extremely rare and it shuts everything down. The pandemonium that ensues will never cease to amaze me. Having grown up in the north, I happen to love the snow—wish we could get more of it. But I love it even more now that I have done my first plein air in it. It was a lot of fun. Hope you like it. It's my first in the snow.
