Will there be a 'paint out' at MacDonald House this year? If 'yes', please advise the date as I really enjoyed last year's event there. Doug

Plein Airing in San Miguel

Posted on December 13, 2013 at 10:11am 1 Comment

I'm not a cold weather, plein air painter and first to admit it. But I plan to do plenty of it this winter in San Miguel de Allende (SMA) Mexico where you'll find me set up in the Jardine a few times each week capturing the light of this old colonial town.

Hasta Luego, Doug

Great idea to paint on Friday! I will be at work until the show so I can't make it sorry, but it is a great place to paint!
