Artist Demonstration

Several artists are available. We are celebrating our painting camping trips. We will show “on the road” paintings, done together at various locations in Washington, Oregon and California. Camping and painting – what’s not to like! We will show maps, photos of “paint outs” and share our favorite camping/ painting spots.

Artist Statement

Because our goal is to capture the light and colors unique to a particular place, we take our paints, ipads and easels outdoors. Painting on location allows us to witness firsthand the effects of light (and weather and season) on the landscape. Our small paintings are usually completed from bare canvas to completion on site. Kathy Francis, Marian Morris, Roger Morris are plein aire painters and mixed media artists.
