Just a short note to plein air artistsin the northeast to consider attending next year’s event (first week of August2013). This is Canada’s largestpaint-out: two and a half days inHighlands East, about 5 hours from either Syracuse or Buffalo. As a firsttime attendee, I was really impressed with the spirit of camaraderie andnon-competitiveness. Tracey, theorganizer, even put on a free farewell barbecue with fun art contests andprizes so we could get together to compare notes! This event had both newbiesand full time painters and Tracey was able to give everyone a gift generouslyprovided by Guerilla Painter. I wasreally inspired by Carl Judson’snotebooks, which came in my gift bag; better than anything I have seen or readon plein air.
