Plein Air Easton 2015

 Point Pleasant Poem (16x16) oil on linen SOLD

Had a wonderful time returning to Plein Air Easton last month (my 4th time) and the beautiful landscape there. Surprisingly this was NOT the hottest week of the year as is usually the case; still there were plenty of bug bites and lots of humidity, but that gets forgotten in the midst of all the camaraderie and great events the PAE organizers put on...

Made in July (9x12) oil SOLD

I was able to stay with a painter friend afterwards for a few days and tour the Smithsonian Museum of American Art where they have several Thayers, Benson's and Tanner's that were all amazing to see in person (especially the Thayers)! We even stumbled upon a William Wendt that was being cleaned in their restoration room. Good times again in Maryland -- hope to return next year!

  1. What a great event with so, so many participating artists! I always say that the west coast is the best coast - the only exception is when talking art. But we're getting there and as long as we have some flagship talents like you, we will get on the map here in the PNW, and I do believe we are on our way.
    Hope you had fun Eric - I love your submissions - at first glance I thought Point Pleasant Poem was a studio work - love it!!
    Hoping there is room for two more this fall in your local workshop. Checking now.
    Happy painting - adore your stuff as always. ♥
