Hello Friends, We had a fantastic, fun day painting the scenery here in Salem, Va. today. RR Donnelly was kind enough to let us set up on their gorgeous little neck of the Blue Ridge Mountains. They are located in a techy park right off I81 and between Salem and Dixie Caverns.
The views are beautiful and luckily the building lets the employees enjoy all of it. Above is the view straight out of their front door. Sue painted this 9x12 in oils.
Here is a shot of everybody (except the photographer) as they are getting set up.
Bonnie told me she is using the "Zorn" palette and it looks to be about 9x12 also.
Judy is using her acrylics today on something like a 6 x 12.
Another shot of Judy and Bonnie with the beautiful mountains. Somewhere over to the right is a hiking trail and we want to venture out that way in the spring for more painting pleasures.
Above is a view of the mountains behind the building on a 3 x 6 with the red tree included.
Here is Bonnie's at the finish. She was happy with how it turned out using the Zorn palette.
Here is Mary Anne's at the finish of painting session. She and most all of us will probably add a few flourishes after studying them a while.
Here is Sue getting on with the hard work in spite of the wind blowing her palette away and getting oil paint on the grass which she stepped in and got all over her shoe. The life of an artist is tuff at times but one we can't give up.
We want to thank Mr. Searles at RR Donnelly for allowing us to paint their beautiful property . We would love to go back again this spring..

I got a bunch of Tree photos. There are some beauties out here. Beautiful shades of orange and burnt red. Since I'm an artist, I couldn't help but figure out what colors I'd have to mix to get these colors in the trees. Indian Yellow and Quin. Red kept coming to mind.
We hope you folks have had a chance to get outside and enjoy the cool air and beautiful skies with all the brilliant trees.

Hello Friends, This morning some of the DLP met at Mill Mtn Coffee & Tea in Salem, Va. Some of us are out of town but the show went on. We were just discussing where to meet for more plein-aire painting and website options, etc. Yeah, every now and then we act like we are professionals and make plans !! Several exciting things coming up.But we wanted to share with you, all the praise bestowed on the DLP by the Director of the Sedalia Center in Bedford, Va., Doris McCabe. This workshop was presented to DLP at the very last minute, so Judy and Mary Anne were the only ones that were free to instruct the class. And evidently it went very well. Read her letter below. I copied and pasted, so it's a tad blurry.
Praise for our workshop at the Sedalia Center
It is certainly nice to receive praise and appreciation for our workshops but it is especially rewarding to receive a letter from the Director, Doris McCabe, stating how well our workshop was organized, executed, and received by the Bedford art teachers in attendance at the Sedalia Center.
