New Plein Air Group

 "RR Gingko"
12" x 12" oil on canvas
plein air in Madison, GA 10/13/10

The Fall Line Gang... that's what we are calling ourselves.  Newly formed, this group is the brainchild of Matthew Songer and the name refers to the region where we all live.  The Fall Line is where the Piedmont Plateau falls off and the Atlantic Ocean used to be millenia ago.  This group is like a breath of fresh air to me!  It is stretching me beyond my comfort zone and into new territory.  In the near future I will introduce you to each member and hopefully we will add more plein air lovers as we go.  So far we have watercolor, oil, acrylic and pastels represented.  We critique each other's work and learn from each other as we paint.  We enjoy the camaraderie that is so special to a group of artists.  I will post when and where we are gathering and open an invitation for you to paint with us if you are in the area.
Tomorrow, Monday Oct 18th, we will meet at 9:00a.m. at the Old Depot in Barnesville, GA and will be painting in and around the station.  Contact me by email (sidebar) if you think you can make it.

Fantastic that you have this group! I don't painting very well plein air, unless I can get started with a photo, then finish up onsite. Very cool!
