Southport Paint Out was AWESOME! Arboretum was GRAND too!

Approximately 50 plein air artists gathered in the quaint coastal town of Southport, North Carolina, last Saturday. We were treated like kings and queens by the hosts and public. A great day spent with artist friends indeed! The weather also cooperated on Sunday for our gathering at the Wilmington Arboretum. Enjoy this video that highlights both days of awesome plein air painting event.
