This plein air event [also called the Snake River Valley Paintout in Buhl] is in its 10th anniversary. It is scheduled Wednesday June 3rd through Saturday the 6th. I plan to be there for 2 or three of those days. Visit the Eighth Street Center Buhl Idaho website for more on this. See you in Buhl, Idaho.

This post is the first with my new Nokia E63 phone. When I post using the phone the format will always resemble what you see here. What you are seeing is the evolution to real time painting posting. I may still post to the flicker site, but I have not decided yet on that.
By the way, this painting now sits along side “Ramona” and “Chopin’s Etude @ Niagra Springs”. They are in the year long show in the Buhl Arts Council at the Eigth Street Center; in Buhl Idaho. I will be posting a detailed web page on the Plein Air Paintout, sometime in the next few weeks.

This was the first of three plein air paintings I performed at the 2009 Buhl Plein Air Paintout. I consider it a study, since the original composition was complex, and I intend to repaint at this location in the future. It is now on exhibit [and for sale] for the next year along with last years creation called “Ramona”. I was able to reframe Ramona in a better frame. Below is Fred Choate expounding to me the natural composition.
Of course, below is I, absorbing all from my mentor, but listening to the river speak in another language. Obviously, I listened to the later more than the former.
This was a busy day in that Fred and I had to return to the Basement Gallery, for the June Reception at night. It looks nice and peaceful here, but in reality, I had to ride my motorcycle 320 miles in a stiff gusting side wind of up to 45 mph. Sometimes the Semis and I were just going 45 miles an hour down the highway. It was the windiest day in Idaho in a long time.
“Ramona”, 14×11 PA oil on canvas, by Rog Lyngaas, 7jun08, using choate7 palette.
Ramona was a movie theater in Buhl, Idaho. When Fred was a child living in Buhl, he collected the stoppers from milk and cream bottles from the local dairy. Once he had enough he would get free Saturday matinee movie passes for this theater. This building now houses a Mexican restaurant. This painting was done “plein air”, framed wet, and immediately placed into the Buhl Art Council’s Plein Air Paintout show for 2008, at the 8th street center in Buhl.
