I will devote an entire blog post to the historic Canadian plein air artists at a later date.
"Outside The Lines" narrator Walter Fari says, "What started a hundred years ago when men and a few women took their easels outdoors to paint has turned into a huge world wide movement today."

Ottawa Plein Air Painting - Summer 2015
I have been bitten by the "plein air painting" bug. I love that plein air painting takes me outdoors for hours at a time and that my painting skills are challenged. I love that you must paint very quickly to catch the light.

My Plein Air Teachers
I have been blessed with the amazing generosity of some great plein air painting teachers in my life:
- Miss Kertesz at Caledon Hills in the fall
- John Alexander Day in Ottawa
- Helen Walter and Keith Thirgood of Wilson Studios at Killbear
- David W. Jones in the Ottawa Valley
I have registered for my first ever "Plein Air Paint Out" this August (2015) and I am both nervous and excited.
