  1. Eric,

    Thank you for all you do for the movement! I began doing plain air in the early 80’s in graduate school at American University with Ben Summerford and Bob D’Arista. I can remember painting along the Potomac in the snow and building fires to keep my hands and paints fluid. After unfortunately surrendering to corporate life to survive K am finally back in the flow! Thank you for your commitment to landscape and it’s beauty. Loved your interview with Rodger and Don Demers.
