Conyers Monastery of the Holy Spirit Plein Aire Paint Out
Barbara Dickerson was one of several Artist to attend this special event on the grounds of the Conyers Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers Georgia. This was the second "paint out" on the grounds in the long storied history of the Monastery; the first was eight years earlier. The invited Artists were allowed to traverse the spacious grounds and buildings during a special week of plein aire painting.
Below are the paintings Barb completed during the week. She invited her current and former students to drop by to visit and view, while she painted in the beautiful outdoors of the Monastery grounds.
Barb completed thirteen Plein Aire Paintings during the week of which eleven were sold at the end of the week.
