On Friday, June 30, you may have seen some "plein air" painters set up at the Overlook at Smith Rock State Park. That's the French phrase for "open air" painting enjoyed by many in the outdoors.  

Local Bend Artist, Cindy Briggs and her "Make Every Day A Painting" International Workshop partner, Theresa Goesling brought the group to Smith Rock, as part of a 3 part workshop from Bend to Sunriver Resort.

Cindy and Theresa love bringing their students to the park.

"We enjoyed our Plein Air Watercolor Sketchbook Workshop at Smith Rock.

As always it was spectacular. The pavilion offers shade and an amazing perspective of the stone cathedrals."
