Randall Cogburn on Galveston Island

Texas artist Randall Cogburn was lucky to remain terrestrial recently when his setup on a jetty on Galveston Island was threatened by weather rough enough to rile up the ocean, but not rough enough to scare off this plein air painter.

Minnesota artist Carl Cedergren recently sent us photographs of himself painting on a frozen river around Pine County. We found his paintings appealing, but chilling!

Water, Water Everywhere!

Cooper Dragonette spent a lovely morning painting a small plein air study of the stormy coastline at Pond Cove in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. The heavy rains ended, the seas calmed down, and the big waves subsided so he could finish his painting. Unfortunately, the storm got even with him when he returned home.

We enjoyed this photograph of Jason Prigge, a snow painter, and his "self-portrait" so much we wanted to share it with you.

Painting Along Narrow Streets in England

Derek Daniells likes to paint along the narrow streets of Stony Stratford in England. Normally, the location is reasonably quiet, but at times the snow, cold temperatures, and splashes from passing “lorries” force him to take refuge in the local pub.
