En Plein Air

During this visit to Victoria we have found our way to painting en plein air. I have to admit that it has never been my favorite pass time (painting outside, that is) it attracts way too many people. I have found, however, if I am not actually painting, it is fun for the kids to get that attention.
They were pretty happy when people commented on ‘the artists’ painting. The four of them have decided to call our excursions ‘art camp’ and are happy to paint anywhere any time. YEAH. There have actually been whole moments of silence!

  1. I always thought everything you did outside was called al fresco. Hmmmm. I miss you…terribly. Scarlett has party hair, Jacob is wearing skinny jeans, they all look so engaged in the activity of being artists, they all look so grown up. Come home….

  4. I miss you both but am having fun with the kids. They really are enjoying art camp. I wish I could figure out how to paint at the same time but perhaps in the future!
