Plein Air Painting – Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, PA, June 5

The second half of next weekend, Sunday, June 5, I’ll be participating in a plein air event just a few minutes from home – in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia.

I did this event last summer – you can read about it here. And I’ll let you in on something – though I said the painting was finished after the event – a few days later I took it out and did some more to it. It looked pretty similar, and yet – not! So that goes to show you that everything is subject to revision. Here’s the finished painting, and if you like, you can compare it to what I did on the plein air day.

 

"It Will Take All Day to Get There" - 18" x 18"
“It Will Take All Day to Get There” – 18″ x 18″

 

Anyway, I had a great time, and I’m glad to be going back. I have a different location to paint this year – I’m at the top of the hill on Germantown Avenue, the 8600 block (last year I was in the 8300 block).  If you are around, stop and say hello. I’ll be there (unless it rains, in which case there is a rain date of the next Sunday, June 12) from about 8 am to early afternoon.

  1. I went back to your original post so I could compare and I like the additions you’ve made. What another great event you are involved in. I will have to check the calendar and see if we can make it along.
