GROW BY GETTING OUT

On the Rio Grande, Big Bend
This is from my recent trip to Big Bend National Park.  Thanks to my friend, and fellow painter, Jim Bragg, for the photo.  It was a fun and worthwhile painting trip with a group of avid plein air painters from the Outdoor Painters Society.  We spent a week painting together throughout the park.

I love to get out like this.  It primes the pump of enthusiasm, offers the circumstances for intense focus on painting, supplies reference sketches and photos for more studio work, and the opportunity to be with a great group of like minded people.  If you're trying to improve your painting, and expanding your inspirational resources, I strongly recommend joining a group of painters who are committed to similar goals.
