The Verde Artist Guild held a paint-out today on the grounds of Stanford University. More than 30 artists attended! It started out a bit foggy, but thankfully cleared up quickly. The area includes beautiful fresh-spring grasses, grand eucalyptus and oak trees. Given the slight fog in the atmosphere, it was a great day to practice arial perspective. We struggled somewhat with the sun going in and out of the clouds, but in the end, everyone created some great work.
Congratulations to Cynthia DeBenedetti! She’s been accepted into this years annual National Oil Painters of America show.
