En Plein Aire


Plein Aire painters have the opportunity to work in a pastoral and peaceful setting in Mansfield. The fleeting light that occurs only in nature may be captured in any style of painting and by staying in the Guest Inn a painter may return to the same spot at the same time to extend exposure to that special light condition.


Painting from photographs cannot compare to painting in the outdoor. Being truthful to nature helps you convey the atmosphere and feeling of this unique place.


At the same time you can relax, renew and refresh in this historic setting.   (more)
