Plein-air painting is a blast!! It's so challenging. I did a few paintings today with my new little box on my lap. It stays propped open and it holds everything perfectly. From a distance it just looks like I'm working on a laptop.

  3. Lovely. When you're doing plein-air, do you often have a passerby want to purchase right on the spot?
    Stay inspired!

  4. Peindre en plein aire n'est certes pas simple... Je suis heureuse que vous ayez trouvé un certain confort... le résultat est sous mes yeux, subjuguant... Des nuances de couleurs vivifiantes.
    Gros bisous

  10. Just scrolled through all your paintings. Love the way you look at life and how you portray it with vibrancy, energy and cheerfulness. That's certainly brightened up my wet gloomy day in the UK...

  12. Nora, I can't wait to buy one of your pieces. I just love them so. Another beauty in this one and I love your little set-up. I'm not much of an outside person (heat, humidity, bugs...bah!) but always enjoy the plein aire pieces of other artists.
