This is the first blog I ever read, a tribute of sorts from a true luddite. if any CHAW artist wants to join our very informal plein air group, send an email to ahoman1110@. We go out once a week, weather permitting, to a nearby park or other site, e.g. the Washington Sailing Marina, the Franciscan Monastery, and paint or sketch then enjoy a picnic or restaurant lunch. No instruction or fee and no prerequisite, just companionship and encouragement.
