Janna in the portable painting studio

This weekend found my daughter, Janna and me in Savannah, Georgia for a long weekend together! We packed the portable painting studio, AKA my Nissan Pathfinder, with painting supplies and headed to one of many peaceful southern vistas, Bonaventure Cemetery.
The second day, we were joined by our talented friend, Becky deMarco.
Like daughter, Like Mother

Guerilla Painter Setup - This pochade box and easel combo makes it simple to take the essentials outdoors.
Many thanks to Guerrilla painter, Carl Judson, for helping with my plein air setup and teaching me how to use it effectively.

My almost finished painting
This is the 5th in a series of cemetery paintings. As locations for painting, cemeteries are peaceful, mostly quiet spots with opportunities to paint a great variety of subjects. I tend to gravitate toward the headstones, grave markers and the statuary. Janna had her eyes on a huge oak tree covered with vines, while Becky was attracted by the open vistas and trees.
