Spring has sprung here in San Diego and that means more sunshine and outdoor events. I thought I'd highlight a few that feature art or plein air painting, including some upcoming events in which I'll be participating.
I'm a newbie participant in the monthly artwalk that takes place at Old California Restaurant Row in San Marcos. The artwalk is a relatively small but lively event that occurs alongside, but separate from, a car show. I think it creates a nice mix of people who can appreciate creativity on many levels.
This past Sunday was my second day out there and I'm happy to report that some very nice people took home some of my art! It's so gratifying to feel that bit of appreciation for what you do and how you see the world. And it's heartening to know that there are people in your community, aside from your fellow artists, who actively make art a part of their lives.
I'm a little bummed that I won't be there for the next one in May, since I'll be participating in Art in the Pines; but I'm already planning for the artwalk in June.
So thank you, art appreciators, for supporting the art in our community as well as this particular starving artist! For more info on the artwalk and car club event, click here. Or to check out their Facebook page, click here.
I have a passion for plein air painting. I try to capture and share the moments of beauty I find. You can see some of my work online at:
