April 10th Meeting Guest Speaker

 Doreen O’Connor:  Plein Air Painting

Doreen O’Connor is a painter in acrylic and watercolor who prefers to work en Plein air (on-site, outside). She is going to give us a demo of her Plein Air set-up which is light weight, portable and as complete as possible along with money saving tips. She will also give a brief painting demo if time permits.

A lifelong resident of the lower Hudson Valley area, O’Connor enjoys painting whenever possible and working with several groups of like-minded artists from whom she continues learning. She does not remember a time when she was not involved in art. She has a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Art Education and taught for a few years before getting into historic house museum work that combined history with life skills like spinning, weaving, and openhearth cooking and antiques. After many years in the museum field, she started a decorative painting business in 1990. There she did faux finishes, murals, painted furniture, Trompe L’eoil, and many other fun projects. She is a member of Sherman Artists and ArtEast, and currently is in a show at LIVE 4Art in Pawling, NY.
