Summertime Fun

"Prairie Storm at Sunset" by Marla Smith, available at the American Plains Show in Las Cruces, NM, Sep 9 - Oct 30, 2011.
I know a lot of Arizona Plein Air Painters members have run off to cooler climes to paint, but a few of us are still here toughing it out (and dreading the 117-degree heat forecast for this coming Saturday).  Despite the minor amount of whining we do, most of us still find ways to enjoy painting in Arizona year-'round.  Here's a perfect example:

Dawn Sutherland invited members to join her in Flagstaff at the end of June for a lovely paint-out opportunity at the Flagstaff Arboretum.  Also painting at this free-to-enter event were Jane Newman, Christine Debrosky, Roger Krouse, Susan Kliewer, and Jeff Dolan.  You can see a slideshow of photos from this paint-out on the APAP website's Shows, Paint-outs & Events page at

If you are planning an event for APAP members, or would like to share a success or show announcement about your work, please send complete info and photos to Sandy Farley,

Susan Kliewer captures a moment at the Flagstaff Arboretum Paint-Out.

Here's wishing you and yours a lovely July 4th Holiday!
It's great to have the freedom to enjoy painting in America!!
