Recently a group of artist calling themselves OOPS! organized for the sole reason of keeping the tradition of plein air painting alive in Eastern North Carolina. OOPS! stands for the Onslow Outdoor Painters Society which gathers once a month for "Paint Outs". The first "Paint Out" was held in downtown Jacksonville at the Pelletier House near the waterfront giving our artists a variety of subject matter to paint from. I chose the historic Pelletier House and this small plein air painting was the result of a GREAT day of fellowshipping with other artists and painting.
