    There are times when just my watercolor pad with paints is all I need to paint making it easy to paint any where.

    Plein Air means sitting in front the the object you are painting so you are painting directly from the object. This shows my set up in the farm at the Kuerner Farm in Chadds Ford.

         Chadds Ford, PA  on a late spring day.

I painted the Betsy Ross House sitting on my stool at the curb across from this historic property as trucks and cars  passed by.  Couples from New Zealand and France stopped to chat as I painted.  It was a special plein air experience.
 
 
I sat on the hill beside the Kuerner farmhouse this time on my  chair on a late spring day with a different perspective.  As I painted, hawks flew overhead and the clouds rolled by.  It was so peaceful and relaxing.
 
 
When I left home this October morning it was only about 40 F.  Some of my friends painting that day went out earlier and had their  paints freezing!!  So I had gloves on and walked around  to find this spot.  
The Cloverdale farm is located outside Centerville, DE and is a state park that you can visit.  They have farm animals and these fields with crops and flowers.
