Plein Air Painting on the Farm

A few weeks ago, on a lovely June afternoon, Sharon hosted a plein air day at her farm in Mid-Ohio. “Artists love the camaraderie while painting outdoors,” she said.  “We encourage and gain inspiration from nature and one another.” Even Pepper, Chuck & Sharon’s canine companion, watched eagerly, hoping to inspire one of the artists by posing a short distance away while the artists worked.

Making a Plein Air Masterpiece – Maybe

Sharon painted three plein airs that day. Plein air paintings are a study of nature and light and are not meant to be finished works of art. Not all plein airs turn out as the artist intends because they are quick sketches. “But, occasionally,” Sharon said, “one will be a keeper!” Of course, all her plein airs are for sale. And sometimes she even sells them on site. On that day, one of her paintings did turn out very nice with a beautiful display of afternoon light on the old milk barn.
