A landscape oil painting at Kentucky's Shaker Village. I was captivated by the morning sun shadow on the side of this stone meeting place on the far west side of the historic village.
In the far left is a red barn where the horses and stable are located.
Wednesday was the first paint out of the year with Plein Air Painters of the Bluegrass, one of two plein air groups I have now joined.
I had to overcome fear of painting in public and then doing so with outstanding professional artists with their own studios. I was pleasantly surprised with how encouraging and inspiring other artists are. I think they understand the constant struggle and problem-solving of creating art.
We all are at different levels of experience and ability, but the quest for perfection always seems just out of reach. I believe that is the secret of why artists are a happy, encouraging, persistent, helpful lot. We're all struggling together.
