Plein Air

On Wednesday, as I walked into my side yard, I noticed a painter had set up his easel by the road, and was intently engaged in his latest work of art.

His name is Fen Rascoe, an accomplished artist from Windsor, North Carolina, working in oil, and painting in a contemporary impressionist style. He had nearly completed a painting of my wooden skiff when I encountered him.

You can view more of Fen Rascoe's beautiful paintings here:
