LPAPA’s Executive Advisor Rosemary Swimm reminds us, “As a plein air painter you
are always looking for the right place, the right scene, the right time, be it before the sun
rises or after the sun sets so that you can capture that perfect feeling. Inspiration is
drawn from the subtleties in the changing light.”
