Painting in Washington Park

Rick Reinert, Plein Air Painting, Washington Park, Charleston, S.C.

My artist friend Gina Brown alerted me to the annual plein air painting event at Washington Park yesterday. Area artists set up their easels in the park and surrounding streets and let us all watch as they paint scenery, live models and still life scenes. The art work is framed and auctioned later in the evening benefiting the Charleston County High Schools' fine art programs. Cool, eh?!

In my next life perhaps I will be a gifted artist. Meanwhile I am an admirer of these talented folk and love watching them at work.
