"The Early Birdie"
"The Early Birdie" is subtitled "Earth and Sun, Air and Water, Love and the Divine Day, The Light Shine upon Thee", This really sums up what is being honored in this watercolor, as my husband is about to sink a putt in the very early morning light. The subtle use of yellow light was very exciting to me.

EnPleinAir is a juried painting exhibition presented as a collaboration between B-W Greenway Community Land Trust & Fairborn Art Association. It was established in 2009 to heighten public awareness of our local greenspaces and the need to preserve them, as well as to foster an interest in painting from nature. Each year a different location in the Fairborn, OH, area has been chosen as the subject of the paintings. The 2013 location is Downtown Fairborn. See the attached prospectus for complete information.
