A Plein Air Artist Field Moment

“Hadn’t gotten out for a couple of weeks due to a busy work schedule and even though the day was overcast I felt the urge to get out and move some paint around,” said plein air painter Jeff Eickhoff.

“Rode the bike over to Westbroekpark and found some nice heather in bloom. Had a few helpers when I was starting the block-in. I love when kids engage in the early stages of a painting. I help them mix some color and they love filling in an area. Always such a great experience for all involved.”
