Lakeside and Standing Tall VI 9X12 plein air paintings

Lakeside by April M Rimpo

What a perfect paint out as part of the Columbia, Maryland 50th Anniversary celebrations.  The weather could not have been better.  Temperatures ranged from 60 - 70 during the day with a lovely breeze.  The views were incredible around Wilde Lake.  Painters had the option to paint at either Wilde Lake or Lake Kittamaqundi in Columbia, Maryland.  The turn out by local artists was great.  
Standing Tall VI by April M Rimpo

I was able to complete two paintings. Lakeside is the piece I selected to include in the exhibit, Color Columbia, to be held at the Columbia Art Center from September 16 - 30. The exhibit will be hung that week with an opening reception and awards ceremony on Saturday, September 16, from 3 - 5 PM.  Artists worked in a wide variety of media making the exhibition diverse. Come out to see what artists create while working in the elements. 

My second painting, Standing Tall VI, is the second painting of the day. This scene is at the opposite end of Wilde Lake from where Lakeside was painted. I'm looking back toward my earlier location, but is it actually further around a bend and not in view from here. I was drawn to this tree, standing alone by the lake, with its sporadic leaves.
