My trip so far on this journey has been awesome!  I've met some new artists and some from Plein Air Easton.  The weather on the first day was gray and over cast.  Only when I was finished did the sun come out.  Monday, proved to be epic and full of brilliant morning light.  I wish had more time to take pics, but I wanted to get a jump on the first painting.  The second painting was just plain challenging.  The clouds came back and brought torrential showers, but I was determined to paint thru it as long as the wind didn't blow too hard.  Luck prevailed and I left feeling good at accomplishing a painting thru heavy rain.
