Thursday. Estes Park PLEIN AIR 2008.
Thursday is Media Day and painters spread out in downtown Estes Park, mostly along the Riverwalk and there are views in every direction. We talk to tourists, the media and basically advertise the Plein Air Event. I always enjoy the Media Day and try to do 2 paintings somewhere in town. This day tho', after painting on the Riverwalk, I met up with Eldon Warren and his friend Peggy Hill, a poet along for the ride (check out his blog, poetry included, at www. Eldonwarren.wordpress.com), Rick Frisbie and Dawn Normalli a painter from Estes and we headed up to paint the afternoon at Sprague Lake. Funny, how certain spots get to you. Sprague Lake is one of my favorites; morning or evening.
