Last day at the Plein-air event in the Alpine County of Calif, Markleeville. - - -What a beautiful Sunday it was , too.   The event had run thru the month of July after a week of painting each day the week before it opened at the Gallery.   This last Sunday had a few of us painting in town, which is interesting because of all the sites there.  Town was full of tourists, campers and bikes so I do hope the Gallery did well. I did the old School house for my last painting, and visited with passer's by as I painted.    And this one of the water tower attop the hills which holds water for the colony there I painted during the week of painting  before the gallery opening.  Tomorrow, I go and get my work and say good-bye to the Gallery as they are also closing their doors.  I am not sure if its the economy , but most likely,  but its not able to remain open.  This is very sad, the gallery owner really worked,  hard, was progressive, and did her best.


  1. Great painting Ida! Talk about light, this has light. Nice work. I am sorry to hear about your gallery closing. I had that happen last year and it was sad. We do get attached to our galleries and the people, they are wonderful to have.


  2. You are on a roll with your plein airs. I enjoy them greatly. Galleries here are having tough time too. Talk at ya later.
