"Sound the trumpets! Plein air painting has its magazine back. And not just back but a concerted creative relaunch: the new Plein Air Magazine is bigger (love the coffee table art book size) and broader in the magazine's range of in-depth articles into the psyches of artists we admire, with insightful coverage of current, historical and future events. Plein Air is positioned to be the leader to chronicle the "painting from life movement" and profoundly effect the scope and acceptance of representational art today." - Cathy and Emily Dietrich, artist/owners of RayMarArt, Inc, manufacturers and avid readers

"I have just paged through the electronic edition of Plein Airâ„˘ and wanted to congratulate you on a great looking publication. I am impressed with the added features in the electronic edition, especially the videos and the articles about historically important painters. Thanks for including some watercolor artist. I hope to see more in the future." Laurin McCracken of AWS NWS in Fort Worth, Texas
"Thank you so much for heeding the words of people like me and resurrecting PleinAir Magazine. It is so great and such an inspiration, I can see myself reading each issue more than several times. This is one magazine that I plan on keeping in my library for future reference.
The convention planned for next year, looks like it will be quite an event. I am very excited about that and am already working on a plan to to attend. I'm not sure if you realize just how much this has energized so many people. Everyone I know who has received their issues has been almost reborn with their art in the sense that they feel compelled to work harder, look longer, try the more difficult composition and generally put themselves to the test. It is very inspiring and I must say the writing has left me feeling like I know these artists.
Thank you once again for a job well done, and I can't wait to see the next issue." - Krystal Allen
"If it is possible to salivate over a magazine, I do it over PleinAir
. Thank you for helping to resurrect this wonderful magazine and making it as luscious as it used to be. I will remain a life-long fan and reader. Thank you also for including Kim Lordier in the first issue, who I think is a wonderful artist. I found the first issue to be a nice mix of well-known and somewhat lesser-known artists, the articles informative and inspiring. Keep up the good work!" - Melody Sears from Hillsboro, NM

"Thank you, thank you for bringing Plein Air magazine back. It has been missed. It is refreshing to see the new format with the focus on the art form. I hope that you will continue to focus on the artists, those of us who paint plein air year round and are dedicated to the movement. The inclusion of the various vendors and suppliers is a great addition and I hope you will include more in the future. I have always enjoyed the historic aspect of the Plein Air magazine and look forward to more inspiring articles and historic photographs of the pioneers of this art form. Thank you also for your continued support of the various plein air events throughout the country. Paint on in the open air." - G.Y in Colorado
