"Red Church Doors" of Wayne Presbyterian for Wayne Plein Air

This was painting number three of the eight created during last week's Wayne Plein Air competition. I only had the morning on Wednesday to paint, as I was to set up as one of two artists presenting our work for purchase at a non-profit fundraising reception in Washington that afternoon/early evening.

It turned out so much better than I thought when it sat up there on my easel. It was framed and put in the box. When I opened the lid the next morning, it was a very pleasant surprise. Maybe the painting fairies touched it in the middle of the night.

It, along with seven other paintings from my Wayne Plein Air adventure are on exhibit, available for purchase through the Wayne Art Center until June 23.
