WET PAINT ! plein air show in Baltimore at the Crystal Moll Gallery

Last week I got a call out of the blue to join in with 15 other plein air artists to paint anywhere in the baltimore city limits for only 16 hours. Two of the sites i discovered were Cylburn Park and Fort McHenry. I was really impressed with the austere beauty of the fort. What an oasis amid industry. I did 5 paintings in 3 days. This was my first "paint out" and way out of my comfort zone but I have to say I enjoyed the challenge and I discovered parts of the city I never would have visited.
