This website, the Plein Air Archives, is—like the project—an invitation to explore. Click around and visit my shared painting encounters, or “dates” as I like to call them. Each date has its own page that documents the experience of painting outdoors in nature with a companion. The content varies from page to page, but most include some of the following: who I painted with, when we painted, where we painted, images of our paintings, a portrait of my painting companion, documentation of our shared view, and a brief reflection on the experience from the perspective of my painting companion. To explore the archive, click on the individual dates represented by the paint pans or use the search box at the top left to search by location, date, or name. Visit Paintings to see the studio paintings inspired by these meaningful shared encounters.
