Easton Quick Draw 2021

I have always wanted to participate in Easton Plein Air because the quality of artwork produced is so darn good. This summer fellow artist Annie Strack and I traveled to Easton, Maryland for the Quick Draw competition. It was so sweltering hot that day, but we found a shady street, set up our easels, and got to work. I loved this 19th century Victorian Gothic Brick Cottage with its steep gable roof and triangular louvered windows. Two hours later the effort was framed and displayed to be viewed and judged. Thank you to judge Daniel H. Weiss for choosing my watercolor. So exciting to hear your name called to receive the third place award! It was a pretty spectacular day filled with amazing artwork in the street and at the local art museum.

Later I researched this home and learned it is the Pinkney House in an area called The Hill. Beautiful and historic to say the least.

Winters Nap

Winters Nap watercolor by Yvonne Mucci framed 9×12 (available)

“Winters Nap” was painted en plein air for Cumberland County’s Winter Plein air event through Gallery 50 in Bridgeton, NJ this past December. The Cohansey river by Hancocks Marina is a favorite place to paint especially during the winter with all the subtle color shifts, so peaceful and beautiful. Even though it was a cold, misty day, I managed to complete two paintings. The fun part was that artists were limited to four colors! Can you guess which colors I used? Great fun.

These watercolors are mounted on hardboard and spray varnished, so no need for glass.

Both paintings are available framed or unframed and can be shipped.

Along The Road

“Along The Road” by Yvonne Mucci (Available 10.5×14, framed 16×20)

Artists, while driving, pass beautiful properties and farms thinking “oh, I’ve got to go back and paint that scene”. Along The Road was painted for Land Art Events. Happy Hollow Farm was so interesting with all those windows. You never see barns like that! Lots of locals waved, tooted their horns, and said hello while I was painting. This painting is available through Land Art Events.

Cool Shadows

“Cool Shadows” watercolor by Yvonne Mucci (13 x 17, sold)

This spring house sat in the shadows, down a hill from the barn and main house. Really tranquil day of painting en plein air. There are lots of spring houses to be found in the Brandywine Valley. Spring houses keep a constant temperature due to the spring water running through them. They kept animals and debris from your water source while extending the life of your provisions by keeping them cool.

This painting is available through Land Art Events in Gallery 7.

Loving The Land – Watercolor

“Loving The Land” watercolor by Yvonne Mucci (6×8, sold)

Personally, it has been an extremely difficult year, so getting outside to paint was good for my mind and soul. One activity that is safe during Covid. This lovely scene was painted en plein air at Rushton Woods Farm Preserve for Land Art Events, Farm to Table Palette to Palate event. I chose the title “Loving The Land” because those working at this CSA truly do love the land. Watercolor is mounted on hardboard and finished with cold wax, making the surface look similar to an oil, no glass needed. Photo below shows it framed in a 6×8 plein air frame.

This 2020 event has been rescheduled to October 22, 23, 24, 2021 at Goshen Hill Farm in Malvern, PA. You can find out about this event and how artwork is helping to preserve open lands at http://www.landartevents.com Painting is available through Land Art Events, or contact me directly.
