This was my first performance art piece. All you plein air painters try this, paint a painting while in a parade. I was painting the Christmas tree that was on the float and what was behind the float while moving, waving to people, and throwing candy to the kids along the parade route. Toni Leavitt was beside me doing the same thing , she is an abstract painter. I don't know why I look so calm. This goes in the category of extreme plein air painting.Glen Plake has nothing on me. Melinda Penkava took the picture from towndock.com
This is the last place the plein air painters painted for this season. It was so full of the fall color.
We were all freezing, the North wind was whipping through the trees. I stayed to finish the painting. John Hanley was there too working on his painting till the last.
