A couple of samples from the 5 day Scotchman Peaks Plein-Air odyssey. There is a film by Wildman Pictures and work by myself, David Herbold and Jared Shear. The work is showing at Lewiston Clark State College Museum of Art and History until Feb. 18th. A nice write up about the show in the Lewiston Tribune as well.

Scotchman Peaks Plein Air

I've always loved the little glimpses you get of the lake looking through the trees.
Couldn't resist this group of cedars next to the creek

en Plein Air (official trailer)

en Plein Air (official trailer) from Wildman Pictures on Vimeo.

Filmed in the proposed Scotchman Peaks Wilderness, the documentary, 'en Plein Air', captures the experiences of artists during a 5 day trek through the mountains.

Plein Air art is known as landscape paintings that are physically created 'in the open air' rather than painted indoors based on a sketch or photo. This film delves into the personal interpretations of the Plein Air concept by water-color painters, an author and us as the creators of this documentary.

Complete film to be released Fall 2010.

'No Intention'
Dirty Projectors
Bitte Orca

This is a non-profit film and company created to educate.

On the Palouse

I've enjoyed the nice diffused light we have had lately. It spreads a nice soft light over everything.
