Last week our plein air group started out in great weather up at Yellow Lake before the clouds rolled in bringing gusts of wind and rain.  Lovely to stand on the dock painting with other artists and fishermen, watching people paddle by in kayaks and of course the birds were plentiful, especially the swallows when the rain started.  This location provides many  fabulous views to be painted so I am sure we will be back.

How lucky our plein air group was last week to be invited to paint at Noble Ridge Winery and Vineyard.  The view was spectacular and the wine with lunch was fabulous.  Be sure to pack some food or buy some snacks there along with a bottle of wine and spend some time at a picnic table in the beautiful gardens looking out over Vaseaux Lake.  I was fascinated by the colours of the rock cliffs and layers of mountains behind the lake.  A quick study in oil on canvas, 8 x 16.
