See Caroline's art web site HERE


One of my favorite times at Plein Air Brandywine was the Nocturne on the last night of painting. By now we'd made art friends, it was a balmy night, the street was closed for us, the restaurant/bar was open with complimentary food, we had three hours to paint, time to paint and relax and chat, and the show was hung outside by the restaurant in the street.

In the Plein Air Brandywine video I appear as a flash...

The quick street video (0:40) of the Nocturne painters Here
is also on the Plein Air Brandywine Facebook site HERE


...as a hidden blink...having a great time...

Enjoying the show on this balmy November night...
