Plein Air Workhop- with Larry Seiler, the NE Wisconsin north woods experience!

There are now just two weekend plein air workshops I am offering this summer and fall.  A chance to take in one of the summer workshops...or enjoy the color of the October fall season!

Our location- Goodman County, as described by the county park department-

Goodman Park has a 15-site campground on the Peshtigo River in the heart of the Marinette County Forest. The campground has firewood for sale, vault toilets, a dump station, and a potable water tower for campers. Water is also available at a hand pump. A large group campsite is available by reservation. Also available by reservation is an enclosed, log day use lodge and a cabin available for overnight stays.

The upper Peshtigo River along with numerous nearby streams provides trout fishing.

*note- due to fee increases and changes in reservation policies requiring all fees paid for the use of the lodge several days after reserving, I have decided we will not be using the lodge.  There is the greater likelihood the lodge will not be leased out anyway (based on my experience) and we could yet stand beneath the overhang awning, and if we desired for any reason an indoor classroom environment, we would have access to my actual classroom in neighboring Forest County.

I also have EZ-UP tents I could put up to stand beneath in the event of rain which worked quite well in rainy Juneau, Alaska when I was out there.

If camping appeals to your adventurous nature, contact the Marinette system to reserve a campsite for the weekend...go to  Marinette County Parks

For others, there is the Potawatomi Northern Lights Casino and Lodge with an approximate 25-30 minute drive...or Best Western Motel in the town of Crandon, about 30 minutes...(12 miles west of Laona, WI)


Saturday and Sunday- 9am to 5pm  (options to paint later if you so desire)

as is often the case, I like to get together with those that arrive Friday, for an evening meal, bit of cheer and time to get to know each other.  We can work those things out by email...

You can register half payment down ($120) to reserve your spot (each workshop is limited to twelve painters), the remaining due upon arrival. I have created convenient paypal buttons below to choose your workshop date preference. Please feel free to contact me for questions. I'll be adding more information as time moves on if I think it important, so please note my category "Workshop Information" to the right side of the blog you can click on to bring this posting up!

Hi Larry,
I wish I could join you there!
And I mean it. I would if I could so.
But the distance between Lisbon and Laona, calculated "as the crow flies", is about 6.332 Km or 3935 Miles!
So, I'll keep an eye on you blog, hopping you share a lot of pics and videos.
"Break a leg".

Larry Seiler takes you in his experience of nature. He paints right where the action is and captures nature’s beauty in a deeper sense than if someone just took a picture and copied it. He has no limit where he paints, he’ll stand in the middle of a river so he can stand right in front of a roaring rapids . I think his way of remembering or capturing a moment by painting instead of taking a photograph shows way more emotion and feeling. His technique is blotches of color to make a remarkable heartfelt painting. Those blotches show his focus on every single detail and color that nature is giving him. It’s amazing that most of his painting only take not even an hour. As an artist you know that the outdoor colors changes constantly so you have to paint fast. But to still have all that detail and emotion portrayed in that short of time is absolutely astonishing.
