I just returned from a really fun trip up to Jackson, Wyoming to participate in the 2nd Annual Plein Air Fest to benefit the National Museum of Wildlife Art. I met so many amazingly talented and well known artists, it was a real honor to paint beside them. Here I am standing next to a life size sculpture of a moose by Sandy Scott that I used for my inspiration. Artists set up all over the sculpture trail and many painted the gorgeous landscape surrounding the museum as well painting animals like I did. When we were finished (after a 4 hour time limit) the paintings were put up for silent auction, and let me tell you, it's a great way to buy originals by established and emerging artists and get to meet them too! My painting sold to a local collector, very exciting! I hope I'll get invited back next year. My family trailed along on this trip and we took advantage of nearby Yellowstone National Park, where I was lucky enough to take some great photos of wildlife for future paintings. If you've never been, schedule a visit up there!
