Mariemont Plein Air Outing

This weekend I went to my first Cincinnati Paint Out.

The setting was a historic German Town sponsored by the Woman’s Art Club. This group was founded in 1892, originally because the Cincinnati Art Club excluded Woman. Today neither club excludes genders.


I chose to paint at the Mariemont Concourse, which overlooks the Ohio River Valley. I started early in the day, and finished in 3 hours, fortunately before the heat of the afternoon.


It was a great experience!


There were about 60 artists attending, who were friendly and welcoming.


Here I am with my painting that SOLD.


10×20″ Acrylic on Canvas with 1.5″ painted gallery wrap edges.

“What I Did Last Summer” Part 1

This summer I’ve been in transition, moving from South Dakota to the Cincinnati area. I have since completeted the move and I want to recap on my blog what I managed to squeeze in my last summer in South Dakota. This is a painting I did at a Paint Out in Oakwood State Park. Acrylic on a Canvas Panel, 8″x10″.

These are the wonderful people who participated at the Plein Air Outing. I miss you all!

Grandma’s Aunt Sally Cookies

I’m sharing my family’s favorite Christmas cookie recipe in memory of my Grandma Dolly. She graciously made them for us every Christmas. We miss her and her cookies too. Only she was as sweet!

Cookie cutters that work. The dough is soft, therefore some cookie cutters don’t work, especially ones that have skinny areas like a reindeer. They need to be tall as well. The one in front is a traditional Aunt Sally shape. The dough can be cut into squares with a knife, as an alternative.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!  -Tracy Bezesky
