Greetings Artists:

Last Thursday, between 45 to 50 artists braved the chilly, cold weather, to watch our Featured Artist, Hodges Soileau give his painting Demo at the North Jetty, at Nokomis Beach.
This was a testament to Hodges special talent as a Teaching Artist and our Lightchasers members desire to learn more about their art and Plein Air Painting, no matter what the weather conditions. With very little sunlight, drifting in and out, and mostly cloudy skies, Hodges still managed to paint a beautiful painting of the palm trees and the walkway to the beach, as seen below.
It was a lesson in how to paint outside, no matter what the weather and lighting conditions are, and still create a landscape painting that is amazing!
Thank You Hodges for a very informative and instructive Demo that was enjoyed by all who were fortunate enough to be there to see it!

This is a Great Chance for artists of all levels to improve as Plein Air Painters by testing their painting skills in a 2 hour time period. 
It is a fun, no pressure, event at the Phillippi Farmers Market. If you are not happy with your painting, put it in your car, and come enjoy the festivities and cheer on your fellow artists! It is basically a very good learning experience of how to paint the essentials of a scene, without getting caught up in the details.

Hope to see you participate in this Fun Event on February 12th!
