I'm thinking about painting a few Mockingbirds this year. What do you think, or do you have a suggest for a different bird ornament this year?
The beautiful weather was a real plus this weekend while painting outside (plein air) in Clarksville during the 2Rivers Plein Air Paint Out. I painted this one Saturday and I liked the way it turned out. While I was painting, I ran into a fellow classmate from 50 plus years ago, that was especially nice. It was a great weekend to be outside. I painted Friday but I didn't like that painting so I'm not sharing.
Clarksville Montgomery County sponsors a Plein Air Paint Out every October. This years event will take place October 16 & 17th, Friday and Saturday. You might see some of us painting in town or Liberty Part. Due to the Covid 19 virus there will be pre-cautious in place. No reception is planned, but a online gallery of the painting and award will still be given for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and honorable mentions.

I just finished up this small acrylic painting last week. I actually started the painting years ago in a session with a live model at Warehouse 521 in Nashville. I had the drawing on the board but that was it. I had taken photos. After the workshop on gestures at the first of September, I decided to finish it. I could practice what I had learned from the workshop with Marjorie Hicks.
This painting is for sale 9" x 12" Acrylic
