Phillippi Mansion Pines
Update: This painting received the First Place Award in the Professional Division of the Light Chasers’ “Paint Sarasota Paint Out” painting competition, 3/17/2018, Phillippi Mansion, Judged by Morgan Samuel Price, an internationally recognized plein air painter.
This is a plein air painting, a french term meaning to painting in the open air, or to paint outside, on location. It is 9″ x 12″, oil on linen panel, painted on 3/13/2018 on the grounds of the Phillippi Mansion in Sarasota FL
I loved the contrast of the natural shapes and colors of the pine trees and gardens against the white stucco Phillippi Mansion white the 3 repeating arched windows.
It will show in the Light Chasers “Paint Sarasota Paint Out” Show this year in their 7th annual show, which opens 3/17/2018.
