plein air painter- San Miguel Allende

Donna Dickson
Feb. 24 - Mar. 2, 2012 - San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

While this workshop is open to all levels of painters, it would help to have some on-location experience, just so you will have more fun when you get here. It 's best to get familiar with painting outdoors and also get used to working with your equipment. If you have a new easel, make sure you know how to set it up and take it down. Oils, watercolors or acrylics are welcome. I will be doing demos primarily in oil but will be happy to accommodate the watercolorists in the group as well.

In my art, my inspiration comes from nature and the iconic themes that are rich with historical, social and cultural meanings. The various heritage sites and sights I have visited infused into my artworks a reflection of their sublime beauty. I focus on the grandeur and dignity of nature, culture, heritage and legacy while offering an artist’s interpretation.

My art seeks to provide one with a source of harmony and offers an uplifting of the spirit through images of wonder and reverence. My art aspire to communicate the beauty of pristine nature whilst reflecting man’s longing for peace and happiness.

Marilyn Fairman reports from PleinAir Magazine's Adirondack Paint-Out

This just in from IPAP Signature Member Marilyn Fairman:

"I just returned from attending the June 21-26th "Publisher's Invitational Paint the Adirondacks" PleinAirTM Magazine outdoor painting event in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York.
PleinAir Magazine Publisher B. Eric Rhoads organized this wonderful, memorable event. Eric’s vision to have a plein air event for artists that was not a competition enabled us to paint, socialize, share our painting experiences and get to know artists from all over the country. Despite the rain, we painted every day and brought our wet paintings back to display during the social gatherings each evening. Over 80 artists participated, and it is estimated that 500 to 700 works were painted over the six days! It was a fabulous week. I got to meet so many interesting, friendly and accomplished plein air artists!"

International Plein Air Painters - July Feature artist Marilyn Witt

Marilyn Witt, Indiana

Artist’s Statement
Growing up on a farm in Indiana has given me a love of nature and the beauty of the land. This has been the inspiration for many of my oil and pastel landscapes. The balance, rhythm, color and light of the seasons find their way into my paintings.
I also enjoy figurative, urban, and garden scenes and subjects inspired by my travels to the southwest, the east coast, and Europe.
I hope to give the viewer a heightened awareness of the beauty of the world around us. The greatest compliment is when someone sees my painting and says, “I feel this place”.

Plein Air Painter - April Feature Artist Larry Seiler

Artist Statement
Winston Churchill, also a painter, once said,
"Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm."
As painters we can certainly see the application of this simple yet profound statement, but in the arena of arts business it is true as that sometimes life's curves in the road make the wanting of something bad enough eventually cause one to question one's own motives.  What does it mean to keep going...and to keep oneself enthused?
All artists experience bumps and bruises, and that's simply the nature of fleshing out a living, but for myself came the urging desire that painting be so much more.  More than reputation, more than reaching out to the promise and comfort of fine living,  painting has become a viable means to engage the moment, empowered to take in, see, digest and participate in a celebratory act.  A grand hoorah, a moment of praise!

It is a feeling of paying oneself straight away, acknowledging having been blessed to see more deeply.  To then find one's work a blessing to others, is a cup that runs over.
