Final Views of the Convention and Point Lobos
                                                "From the Shores of Point Lobos" I would like to add some final views and impressions about the Plein Air Convention that I attended last week and plein air painting at Point Lobos.  First, the Convention was inspiring and informative, and I look forward to participating next year. Because this Convention is an artistically rich educational and experiential event, I encourage all my painting students in The Grand View as well as viewers of our PBS show to attend next year’s 4th Annual Plein Air Convention, April 13-17, in Monterey, California. This is the last of three plein air…

And, I never thought so many artists would recognize me from “The Grand View” PBS show, but it is a blast that they do. The first three days are…

Plein Air Painting at Carmel Mission
"Carmel Mission in Morning Light" It’s Monday, I’m in Monterey, California, and I went out before the Plein Air Convention opened to paint the effects of morning light on Carmel Mission.This is one of my favorite structures to paint. This morning was one of those mornings when everything went right, including the lighting. Plein air painting seashore towns along the coast in the morning can be tricky because fog can impair visibility, making the locations impossible to see. As you can see in my painting, the light illuminated the Mission magnificently today. Many of the top plein air painters attend…
