New Plein Air Paintings


This is a quick little painting of the Block 6 building at Main and Broadway in downtown Fargo. I set up across the street, near the fountain by the depot. I was especially attracted to the warm and cool contrasts between light and shadow and the sky reflected in the windows.

shady lane

I painted this shady lane along the banks of the Red River late one afternoon last week. The spot I picked to set up my easel was adjacent to the frisbee golf course. There was only one close call with a frisbee flying past my head. Sometimes you have to live dangerously to get the painting you want.
