Those Crazy Artists

June 7, 2008

Have you eve seen those old photos with an artist painting a scene on a street or a park? Believe or not, those folks are still around. This was news to me – then I found out I was married to one of those crazy artists!

They actually have a name – plen aire – that’s French for “open air.” The plen aire painters in our county even have a group called Onslow Outdoor Painter Society (OOPS). Their blog can be found at http://oopsnc.blogspot.com/

Their work is currently on display at the Onslow Council for the arts

Here is a photo of my wife, Eileen, hard at work – you can learn more about her here http://oopsnc.blogspot.com/2007/12/meet-oops-artist-eileen-garbett.html

She is soon going to have her own blog . . . I’ll keep you posted. I guess my favorite artist link may have to change then J
