Ault Park, 6"x6", oil on panel © 2014 Terri Schmitt
Last week, I went out with the South West Ohio Plein Air Painters who meet on Thursdays from April to October. We gather at a scheduled location every week. This week's spot was Ault Park, right up the street from my home.

I hauled my easel, palette and folding table to a location just overlooking the manicured lawns, beneath the pavilion. In a few hours I had this 6x6 oil painting of my view. It was great to be outdoors again. I enjoyed a nice lunch in the shade, joined by some new friends.

Being mid-April, you might have thought we would catch the cherry trees in full bloom! Oh no, not this time. A cold snap (followed by heavy rain) took most of the blooms down just days before we got there. There's always next year! The canna flowers in the urn are my addition. Currently, the urn is empty!
