Plein Air Painting Along the Big Wood River in Idaho

Recently, I spent a beautiful, summer day of plein air painting along the world famous Big Wood River in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Big Wood River ©2019 Lori McNee 9x12 oil on linen

Scroll down below for a quick little Instagram video of my plein air painting set-up. Plein air painting is a term for painting outside in the fresh air. When painting outside, the artist must work quickly because the light and weather changes quickly. I like to keep my supplies down to a minimum. It's important for me to use a lightweight, yet stable pochade box which is a portable easel.
I have quite a few different pochade box easels. But for this day, I chose my handy and hardy Strada Easel. This easel is a favorite and was the perfect choice for quickly setting up and painting along the Big Wood River. You can read my review here > On The Go With Strada Easel
To make my outdoor painting life even more simple, I always paint with Cobra solvent-free oils, water mixable paints! On this day, I even used the water directly from the Big Wood River! I like to infuse my plein air paintings with the local water.
People often ask me what supplies I use. So here's the answer! This little painting was painted on Fredrix linen with the Aspen brushes I helped develop with Princeton Brush Company!
I hope you enjoy seeing my beautiful Idaho plein air painting day...

On a warm autumn day in 1939, Ernest Hemingway stood in the Sun Valley Cemetery and methodically read aloud a eulogy for his friend, a publicist for the Sun Valley Resort. Many believed this to be one of Hemingway’s finest works of prose.

“He loved the warm sun of summer and the high mountain meadows, the trails through the timber and the sudden clear blue of the lakes. He loved the hills in the winter when the snow comes,” Hemingway said. “Best of all he loved the fall … the fall with the tawny and grey, the leaves yellow on the cottonwoods, leaves floating on the trout streams and above the hills the high blue windless skies. He loved to shoot, he loved to ride and he loved to fish.”

Much like the alps, Sun Valley, Idaho is nestled below its famous ski mountain, Bald Mountain.  In October, the days are warm, nights are cool, it's our favorite time of year. To read more about autumn in Sun Valley, please read Sunset Magazine's article, "Sun Valley's Golden Season".

Surrounded by magical autumn colors and fellow artists, this informative workshop will balance classroom instruction, painting in the field, demonstrations, personalized critiques, and as a bonus, Lori will share her social media secrets.

When Art and Gardening Meet

water lilies

Art and gardening are two of my favorite things...add in photography, and I have the perfect day!

Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to visit, and paint an amazing garden at my friend's private estate during the Kneeland Gallery Plein Air Event. I thought you might enjoy seeing my photos of this exceptional high altitude gardening.
flowers high altitude
Jane, the estate owner/gardener also happens to be a talented artisan.  A weaver by trade, Jane has woven a beautiful tapestry of color with perennial flowers, interesting trees, and garden sculptures with a bit of whimsy.

Before I began to paint, I wandered the extensive gardens in search of the perfect place to create on a hot August day. The grounds were filled with meandering streams that led to lily ponds amidst colorful flower beds.

garden bench ravens
High altitude or 'alpine' gardening can be challenging, but rewarding. The growing season is short, but the colors are extra brilliant in the bright sun where the air is clear and clean.

Jane's large vegetable garden is fit for a queen, complete with an old wrought iron fence to keep out the local deer, elk and moose.


The entrance to the enormous greenhouse is flanked by hydrangeas and weeping birch trees.  Jane and her husband enjoy entertaining guests to candlelit dinners inside their greenhouse during the snowy winter months.

With her unique flare for detail, Jane lines the base of her outdoor table with wreaths of begonias!

While dining outside, guests can relax to the tranquil sounds of the many garden fountains...

After touring the art and gardening, I finally settled upon a nice shady spot near the edge of an ornamental lily pond.

Somewhat overwhelmed by all the beautiful choices, I decided to paint an intimate scene of a water lily.

Honoring Earth Day in My Own Private Idaho

As an nature artist who lives in the mountains, I am particularly inspired by the Earth and her creatures.

Today is Earth Day, so to honor the Earth in my own way, I thought I'd share a few Instagram photos of my own private Idaho. (I love taking Instagram photos with my cell phone when I don't want to to lug my big camera around).

Earth Day, April 22, is considered the largest secular event in the world.

Earth Day was founded by US Senator Gaylord Nelson, after our country witnessed the atrocities  of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California.
Nelson built a national staff to promote events across the land, and on the 22nd of April, 20 million Americans demonstrated for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies.

Earth Day 1970 achieved a rare nonpartisan political alignment with support from Republicans and Democrats, rich and poor, city dwellers and farmers, tycoons and labor leaders. The first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts

“Nobody makes a greater mistake than he who does nothing because he could only do a little” ~Edmund Burke

Nevertheless, sometimes the problems seem far too big for us to do anything about them. But, truly we all can help the Earth in our own small way - everyday.
This list might seem trite to some of you, but here are a few suggestions that I plan to implement so I can help in my own small way:

  1. Unplug unused appliances and chargers.
  2. Take shorter showers.
  3. Don't let the water run when brushing your teeth.
  4. Wash your clothes in cold water when you can.
  5. Walk or bike around town instead of drive when you can - it's good for the Earth and you too.
  6. Recycle.
  7. Turn off lights, tv, fans, etc. when leaving the home or office or when not in need of being used.
  8. Produce less waste by composting.
  9. Wash your car less.
  10. Sweep the garage instead of hosing it out.
  11. Change filters so the heater and a/c runs smoothly.
  12. Plant a tree.
  13. Use cloth shopping bags instead of plastic when you can.
  14. Buy reusable water bottles and use instead of plastic water bottles.
  15. Nueter your pet.
  16. Adopt a pet at your local animal shelter.
  17. Pick up a piece of trash along a hike or in the street.

Do you have any Earth saving tips to add to this list?
