Wednesday morning Urban Landscape Painting Club

Plein Air Painting the urban landscape every Wednesday morning.  Our urban landscape painting club--which is open to all artists--is painting the historic urban core of Oak Park.  We find our painting subjects in everything and anything we see around us. And--we are learning that you don't have to search all day for the perfect spot--finding the perfect spot is just a matter of setting up the easel anywhere and creating a painting.   Great job Eva and Andy!
