I wish there was a better French term for painting inside. Plein air is, of course, the term for painting outdoors, but painting indoors in French is peindre à l'intérieur, not a term that easily rolls off the tongue.
Regardless, it was a wonderful escape yesterday to paint with several of the members of Paint NC, a group of plein air painters living mostly in the area in North Carolina know as the Triangle. The paint out was at Garden Supply Company in Cary, NC. Finding we could choose to paint inside or out, was all I needed to hear to convince me to go. What a shopping mecca inside that store, so full of the quaint and unusual.
