Facebook challenge day 4: Plein Air Painting


I’ve been nominated by my wonderful and inspiring friend Judy Skulborstad  for a facebook challenge to post three paintings a day, for five days. I got to know Judy on a painting trip in France a few years back and she is so funny and a really great friend. I am so looking forward to seeing her again.

Now I post another most loved and fafourite subject of mine: plein air paintings. What a joy it is to be there outside in nature and just feel the elements. No matter if in winter or summer, rain or with midges: it’s always, always a pleasure. I am just feeling alive.

      Hi Sally! Thanks so much for your encouraging words, that means the world to me.
      We sure did have a great time in France, I really like looking back. And it brought some really special persons in my life as well. Feel blessed. Take care.
