This has been, and continues to be, a very productive summer for the artists of Waterford, WI. Artists that I have had the opportunity to work with are the Plein Air Art from the Waterford Union High School Artists and the Waterford Seven – clients of Connie Lelivelt and my 3rd year of work with them. For those of you who are not able to get out to see the Plein Air works of art in the WUHS Art Gallery – I have submitted a short video (à la manière de James Kalm) for your perusing.
