"En Plein Air"

I titled this painting "En Plein Air" with the French term meaning "painting outside on location." This is the 2nd painting that has been accepted into the art show at the Dallas Arboretum. My first attempt to paint "en plein air" was rained out and had to return another day. Such are the hazards of painting on location...along with heat, mosquitoes, and nosey squirrels. During the process of painting in what I thought was a private area just off a pathway, I heard a clicking noise, turned around and found that about 20 people were taking pictures of my creative endeavor! Privacy is another element that is forfeited when painting out-of-doors. It is also a very good way to meet interesting people.
