Paint out in Riverside today!

Cedar trees are so wonderful in the winter when most of the trees are missing their leaves.

We used the car to block the chilly wind.

Peggy's study.

This was a 'spur of the moment' paint out today.  The wind was whipping and chilly/cold in Parkville so we packed it up and drove to a park in Riverside.  A group of cedar trees caught our eye for a fast  hour and a half painting.

MVIP Paint out in Lee's Summit

MVIP (Missouri Valley Impressionist Society) is doing a wonderful job stirring up lots of interest in artists gathering for plein air events.  One of our group, Debbie Payne, is now a member of MVIP.  Debbie invited me to join them for a paint out in Lee's Summit that final day of November when we had unseasonably warm weather.  The sun was shining and the temperatures were warm enough to shed jackets.  I counted about 6 painters in the location we painted in.  Here are a few photos from the morning.
