Plein AirStream

So I've been itch'n to paint an Airstream trailer for a while now and finally got my chance this morning! The Linger Lodge Campground, along the banks of the Braden River, is a quirky little trailer park just chock full of great subject matter, including trailer homes, kayaks, lily pads and tons of wildlife. I noticed this bright blue awninged Airstream the moment I got out of my car and didn't have to venture far for some challenging reflections, interesting shapes, and a distinct sense of nostalgic Americana! I especially got a kick out of the ratty old upholstered chair outside on the "porch." ;)
