Plein Air by the full moon!

It was a harvest moon last night, I swear! You can click on the image to get a closer view. There was five of us that got together at Nina 's house in the early evening yesterday to do "plein air" painting. Well, Linda and I did photography, Nina played hostess and Joanne and Cecelia did the rest.

The light was ever changing and beautiful. Even with a camera, it was a chase to capture the moment. It seemed to change dramatically every 30 seconds. We did start off with a bit of wind and rain clouds around us. But, typical New Mexico weather, it all dissipated within the half hour.

Enjoy the slide show of the evening. I hope that more members from the Rio Rancho Art Association make more of an effort to come out to events like this. It's great chance to share comraderie, learn more about each other and enjoy the raw beauty and light that we all love about New Mexico!
