Here's a link to the first Brazos Bend Plein Air meetup which was held in February 2011. If you like to get outdoors and paint/draw from life come on out and enjoy it with fellow minded artists.
I plan on setting up a Plein Air Juried Competition and Meetup sometime in the following months ahead. There will be prizes given out so it will be worth it. There might be more than one including locations in Galveston and Houston on different dates. I will have more up to date info later on and will talk about it at the Brazos Bend Plein Air meetup on May 5th including a sign up sheet for those interested. It will be lot's of fun guaranteed. More info will be updated here so keep a tab on it.
You never know what is going to happen when you go out and paint plein air. Here is one of the artist's at last years meetup, Tim Schneider, who's photo was taken by Dan Thibodeaux a local Photographer of the Houston Area, his photo was printed in the January 2012 issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife.
