May 2018

Sandra Difazio shared her artwork and her story in May. Immediately you notice that color become alive in painting done outdoors, surrounded by weather's light effects and detail. Sandra became interested in plein aire through a friend's introduction in Ann Arbor. Eventually she supported the organization by becoming chairman. She has painted under many conditions, day and night. Everyone who attended received a tip sheet for creating a successful painting outside and shared her unique DIY framing and matting technique. If you drive through Saline in the near future you may see one of Sandra's painting blown up and mounted at the Pineapple Gift Shop. Artist secret: Painting outside forces you to get out in the natural world and push forward.
