Plein Air Oil Painting, The Biltmore Estate

Had a fantastic time painting at the gorgeous Biltmore Estate in Asheville on Friday. Oh what a day! The wind was way up for the first painting of the bridge (on the right). I had to hang on to everything just to operate at all!

For the second painting, left, I hiked to the Boat House on Bass Pond. Here, I was sheltered from the wind and spent a good couple of hours quietly drawing, painting and talking to some lovely people who happened by.

Going to do a lot more of this! A peaceful, productive meditation in doing what makes one happy.
