For those of you who don't live around Nashville, Radnor Lake is a beautiful oasis in the midst of a large city. It is a natural area, modestly developed with designated trails, an educational visitors center, an aviary, and a mission to preserve wildlife and the lake ecosystem. The Plein Air Painters for the Land (Chestnut Group) works with middle Tennessee organizations that have a mission to preserve and protect rapidly disappearing natural areas. We paint on location and in-studio those areas and partner with the organization to hold a fundraising art event. We've partnered with Friends of Radnor Lake several times now and had very successful shows, raising thousands of dollars for their projects. This year's show is coming up very soon! November 8-10. Admission is free and the art is amazing. I hope many of you locals will be able to enjoy it (and take a nice walk in the park as well!)
Here are my submissions for the Radnor Show: the two deer paintings were done in studio (obviously), as was the lake painting, from a photo I took of the lake in late summer. I'm heading over to Radnor this afternoon, hoping to do one or two small plein air sketches of a botanical nature. The weather has finally cooled down enough to give us a happy painting day.
Thanks for reading my blog!!
Hello! My name is Wendy and I am passionate about oil painting! Whether in the studio or out in Mother Nature, I get lost in the experience of capturing on canvas the moment and the feel of what I am painting. I pour my love and energy into every single piece of artwork and I hope it shows! This blog is a place where I can use words to talk about art, painting, life, faith, things that make me laugh, and things that inspire. I love every response, so don't be shy about leaving a comment...
