JIM McVICKER PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP AT MORRIS GRAVES FOUNDATION

                                                        "Studio At The Lake"  11 x 14

I recently attended a plein air painting workshop led by Jim McVicker.  It was held by the Morris Graves Foundation at Graves' lakeside home and studio.  It was a great 3 days of working with Jim and soaking up and painting the surroundings of this artist's private retreat. 

Jim is a great painter and knowledgeable teacher and the 10 artists attending had nothing but praise for the experience. These are 2 of the paintings I was able to complete.  As no photographs were allowed I'm hoping to bring a couple more to completion relying on my memory of the scenes.
