It was even more wonderful than I imagined. First of all, there was no competition. So many plein air events center around competitions, and I know a lot of artists enjoy this aspect, but I enter my share of competitions so whenever I get a chance to just PAINT, with no pressure, no rules, no frames, no show--I jump at the opportunity. This 5-day trip was just about a group of painters getting together and doing what they most enjoy. Heavenly!
