Lakeside Plein Air 2017

So a couple weeks ago was my favorite weekend of the summer.  I participated in the Lakeside Plein Air Festival in Lakeside, Ohio.  This was the 4th year I participated, and boy how my style and experience has changed in that time!  This year we camped, which turned out to be fairly remarkable.  I saw some old friends, and I painted, painted, and painted!

I've always enjoyed throwing painting on canvases in my backyard, but there is something so amazing about painting what you see outside.

Here are a few highlights:
