For twelve years, I worked alone in my studio. Being a woman, I was afraid to paint outdoors by myself. The few times I did meet other plein-aire painters, their painting schedules conflicted with my work schedule, or they were located too far from Berkeley.
I can now paint outdoors in a group residing in the east bay. This is a dream come true! Rebeca and Karen have added a new direction and heightened dimension to this ever-expanding adventure called art.
