I had an excellent week painting at Plein Air Vermont. The south western area of Vermont is full of good painting material, especially when someone gives you a few pointers. From farms to covered bridges and any bucolic scene in between Vermont seems to have it covered. I also enjoyed reconnecting with artist friends and meeting a few new ones. It’s a small world in art and its nice to get to know others who share the same passion for painting.
George Van Hook is one of those. He’s an experienced artist with enough energy and drive for 3 artists. George is an excellent example to follow and I look forward to heading to eastern NY to paint with him again. I also got to visit with Ann Larsen whom I’ve known almost as long as I’ve been in NY. Ann is the president of American Women Artists and a fine painter. Both George and Ann were highlights of the event for me… not to mention the painting.
The best and brightest highlight was on Saturday night. Erin grabbed Sargent and made a surprise trip to see me! We stayed at a lovely dog-friendly motel and had a grand time. It was the Sarge’s first big trip and he did great, he didn’t get car-sick once. He especially enjoyed the creek under one of the covered bridges. Erin tells me he “lost his mind” there for about 20 minutes. Good times!
