In the fall of 2015 just as the leaves were starting to change color I took a Plein Air painting class with a local Plein Air group taught by Geoff Krueger.  Geoff is a fantastic landscape artist and paints the most wonderful trees, riverscapes, foothills, oceanscapes, etc.  This class was held at the Foothills Learning Center where there are great options for things to paint every direction you look.  I chose to paint these simple trees.  I loved painting outside from life and plan to do a lot more of it as soon as it warms up a little here.  Over the summer I plan to do a small Plein Air painting a day, I’ll probably take my kids along and we will all do it together.  They are fantastic artists.  I told my daughter we could stand and do it together and she said that she would sit.
