Moving On

Through adversity we paint, and in it sometimes comes our best comes forward. This is a painting from the “Chase County Plein Air Festival.” I had passed this scene at different times of day, and decided on an early morning try. Up well before the sun, I had to guess on where my bovine subjects were. Not so easy, I was asked to “move on” by a rancher, then the cows moved on, and in came a skunk, and I politely urged her to “move on”. But as plein air artists we do our best and go on from there.

Always something

The life of an artist is a bit different than many, the life of a plein air artist is stranger still. A little looser, and you can't let things get to you.

the MVIS

The Missouri Valley Impressionist Society.Summers painting on location at Indian Cave State Park, with fellow MVIS founders Jeff Sparks and Rachel Mindrup. (not shown, Brent Seevers) Here some of the ideas on creating a group for representational artists, to help grow, and build impressionistic art in the upper Midwest were formed. (Loosely, mostly we painted )
