My friends and I had a wonderful two days Plein Air painting up in the White Mountains of NH. We didn't have snow but the scenery was just beautiful, the company was great! when you get six artists together who have the same interest ,paint, paint and more paint ....and we did, non stop! the first day was warm weather perfect for Plein air, the second was a rain storm, but nothing stopped us, the accommodations at the Inn is perfect, we could paint from inside with the view of Mt Lafayette under the clouds. In the evening we found a couple restaurants that accommodated our taste for the local culinary.
