Here's another from the recent archives!  We spend time in winter in the southern California desert, near Palm Springs / Palm Desert.   Both my husband and I love it, and the natural oases with flowing streams or natural springs found in the valley - - beautiful!!   

Plein air painting is a passion ! I always bring my paintbox along on trips, whether we drive or fly.  If we drive,  I can take an almost unlimited amount of painting equipment;  but if we fly, I need to really plan and bring what I know works for air travel and for painting / transporting wet paintings back home.

Want to also indulge yourself and have questions about getting started,  what easels to purchase for a beginner?  Or what easel is best for oil, acrylics, or watercolor?  In this link is a post to my blog, with advice and guidance in PDF form in a 13 pg. article.  My resume highlights include first place for plein air paintouts / exhibits, selection as a Master Artist for a plein air workshop, museum exhibits and other highlights.  Photos, painting tips, an in-depth easel review are included for plein air painting and travel, whether by car or air travel:  Read the post on my blog for more:
