A small group of us have started painting "Plein Air" on Friday and/or Sunday mornings in Bentonsport, IA.  This painting is the 2nd I've created during these paint outs.

There is endless subject matter in this quiet community and the experience of painting on location is sooooooooo energizing.  Each time spent at the easel in the garden has been uplifting with  an orchestra of birdsong and the sound of gentle movement of water from the river. 

For those wanting to share the experience, come join us on Friday and Sunday mornings, 8am to 10 am.  Artists are welcomed to set up anytime around the business district of Bentonsport.  The Rose Garden is located in the Riverside Park just across the main businesses along Hawk street.
