Plein Air Painting!

Big Red
20 x 16
Acrylic on Canvas

Now that I finally have internet restored to my home I can finally post the results of my Plain Air adventure from this past weekend. Some friends and I attended a workshop by Melissa Meeks of Rather Be Painting in Taft, TN close to Fayetteville. This was a glorious day with absolutely perfect weather and incredible subject matter! One of the most interesting things there were the roosters and chickens! There were tons of them everywhere and many different varieties. The largest rooster there was named "Big Red" and he was definitely the top dog amongst the animals. Thanks so much to Melissa for offering this opportunity! Enjoy!
