An Ode to Plein Air Painting
(to the tune of “My Favorite Things”)
By Casey Cheuvront

A little something to hum while you’re out there creating.

Sunshine on water and shadows on rushes,
New RayMar panels and Rosemary brushes,
All of the insights a good workshop brings –
These are a few of my favorite things.
Finding the right track when GPS fails you;
Hiking in though there’s a storm that assails you.
Finding that one view that makes your heart spring –
These are a few of my favorite things.
Cadmium Orange and fresh tubes of yellow,
Chatting with hikers who stop to say “Hello”,
How good it feels when your painting just sings –
These are a few of my favorite things.
When the cap sticks,
When the rig falls,
When the weather’s bad –
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel
so sad!
