Plein Air Painting In Progress: Michelle Kogan

I’m posting this plein air painting that is in progress and that I’ve been working on while teaching my Plein Air Teen class this summer. It’s very appropriate for I am presently switching computers and working between two until all is settled in on the new one. Kinda of an in-between feeling as artwork often has while one works on it. There’s the challenge, excitement and anticipation of completion all mixed together…

Cheers and Happy Summer!
