Plein air painting is a discipline that requires attention and presence, that is different than working from a flattened and static photograph, in that you are translating the information to a canvas as the light changes.
The magic occurs somewhere between the subject and the applied medium. We are not attempting to make a photograph, but a poetic interpretation that has moved the artist in their deep observation of our world.
David Kinker would like to invite painters to experience the beauty of the Rogue River on a painting trip, lodge to lodge, and painting from nature.
Trips are scheduled for June 1, 2014 and August 30, 2014.
