“Along Silver Creek” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 20 x 16, Sold)

“Along Silver Creek” represents another amazing day of painting during the Cedarburg Plein Air competition. I tried to catch the constant movement in the creek. This was a favorite spot of the artists during the week! Everyday there were at least 5 easels set up along the banks.

Fine Rye Grist Watercolor

“Fine Rye Grist” Watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 20 x 16, Sold)

“Fine Rye Grist” watercolor was painted during the Cedarburg Plein Air competition in Wisconsin. Pictured is the Concordia Grist Mill, located in the Hamilton Historic District, and was built in 1853 by Edward Janssen and William Gaitsch. I took some liberties by changing the street out front to a dirt road. This is now a private residence. Around back you can see where the creek flowed through the mill. Really cool place!

Purple and Gold Watercolor

“Purple and Gold” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 11 x 14, Sold)

Cedarburg, Wisconsin never fails with interesting painting subjects. The busy town has all kinds of great architecture, both old and new. “Purple and Gold” watercolor was painted on the last day of the Cedarburg Plein Air competition. I chose this building because it was so different. The longer you looked, the more detail you saw. Of course, that always equals a difficult painting because you want to get it right. So happy this painting has found a home in this beautiful building.

Peaceful Garden – Watercolor

peaceful_garden_mucci_watercolor

“Peaceful Garden” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 11 x 14, Sold)

Sarah’s garden is beautiful! The simple subject of “Peaceful Garden” was complicated to paint. More detail? Less detail? …and so it went. The drawing had to be right and the background simplified because there was so much detail on the birdbath. I love capturing the light and pushing the color in a painting, it brings you right back to that place and time! Which was very peaceful.

This was Cedarburg Plein Air’s 16th year. Happy to have been part of it.

Stilt House “Locally Raised” – Watercolor

locally_raised_mucci_watercolor

“Locally Raised” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 14 x 11)

“Locally Raised” watercolor was painted for Cedarburg Plein Air gems which was the last day of the event. Lots of people were out and about, enjoying the town of Cedarburg, WI.

In the early 1900’s, the owner of the tavern asked the city for permission to add a second floor onto the existing building. After the city denied his request, he raised the building up on “stilts” and built a first floor underneath. Hence the name Stilt House. They have great food!

Hayrake – Watercolor

“Hayrake” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 14 x 11, Sold)

A retired hayrake sits rusting in front of a well preserved blue-gray barn in the Hamilton Historic District. This glade leading up to the barn glowed in the late afternoon sun. It was magical! Best part was being able to enjoy the company of friends while I finished painting.

“Hayrake” was painted during the Cedarburg Plein Air competition. Fabulous event, even better people. Thank you to Cecily and John who give me free reign to paint on their property.

Twisted – Watercolor

“Twisted” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 16 x 20, Sold)

“Twisted at Turn Halle” was painted for the Plein Air Cedarburg event in Wisconsin. This 1867 fieldstone building sits in the Hamilton Historic District. The twisted tree made for an interesting subject, constantly turning in every direction.

The weather was perfect which resulted in some really strong painting from 150 artists. Thank you to my hosts, whom I treasured time spent. Love everything about this event except that it was a week earlier. Have to say that I missed being able to stroll the town during Strawberry Fest. Hopefully next year!

The Perfect Spot – Cedarburg Plein Air

theperfectspot_mucci

Had a fun time scouting around in the Wildcat convertible!  We came around the bend in the road to this absolutely perfect spot.  The barn, grasses, silo, everything was just right!  It felt like I was standing in a painting, so the last day and a half of the Cedarburg Plein Air competition was spent by the side of the road in pure heaven!  That’s why I named this watercolor “The Perfect Spot”.

This wonderful plein air event has 150 artists participating and creating over 500 paintings during the course of one week.  I appreciate all of their hard work and am so thrilled to have been part of it.  Of course none of it would be possible without the support of my family.  Being able to share the celebration with family and friends warms my heart.  Can’t wait till next year!

This painting is available for purchase.
Frame size 20 x 16, Mat opening 15 x 12

Al’s Birdhouse – Cedarburg Plein Air QUICK Paint

Al's Birdhouse watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci

Al’s Birdhouse watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci

Day Four – Quick Paint = 2.5 hours of insanity … can you imagine that in this crazy timeframe you complete a painting from start to finish, including framing and dropping the painting off before the clock ticks down to 0.  But I did it!

This watercolor is my Ode to Al’s Birdhouses!  Al Buss is a Grafton, WI artist who designs, constructs and carves the most fabulous birdhouses I have ever seen.  Every piece is meticulously put together.  I love his work and I thought it would be a great choice for a quick paint.  The contrast of the blue spruce against the warm colored wood and copper was just beautiful hanging in the yard.
