"lol, it hadn't occurred to me that the exhibit housed gear you actively use. That was generous of you to loan it to the museum, and I'll bet it got many visitors curious about paintings outdoors. Looking forward to getting this on my…"

"Thanks Amy,   That’s my ultra lights set up, I’m looking forward to getting it back in operation once the exhibits over. I think it would be impossible to paint from the swinging Bridge. It is very narrow and you would be dropping…"

"Thanks for these ideas, Scott! I agree that it would take a lifetime to explore the mountains -- and that's not even including everything I want to see in the rest of the state. This is such a beautiful area to live in, I want to soak it all…"

"Thank you so much for the details on the weather, that's very helpful! I hadn't considered that up in the mountains it would stay cooler than the lower elevations, so that expands my options into the summer months quite a bit. I'm a…"

"Although The mountains of North Carolina are all so unique and different. It will take a lifetime to fully explore of them all. If you do get up to Blowing Rock certainly buy a pass to go up to Grandfather Mountain. This is another beautiful place."

"Hi Amy, I would suggest Blowing Rock/Boone. Lots of great lodging, right at the Blue Ridge Parkway with lots of pull off’s and lots of restaurants. You also have cheap Joe’s art supplies in Boone if you need anything. Cone Manor is a…"

"Any time of the summer, if you are UP in the mountains, staying in the 75 degree or lower temperature range is no problem.  Our cabin is located at about 4,000 foot elevation and it rarely exceeds 75 degrees up here even when it's 90…"

Location suggestions in the Blue Ridge Mountains

I'm relatively new to North Carolina, and I'm very excited about all of the beautiful opportunities for painting outdoors here. But I'm also a little overwhelmed :)I wondered if anyone had suggestions for places to paint in the mountains. I have a personal goal to schedule a "plein air retreat" for myself where I spend a few days focused only on painting outdoors.

About me

After a career in graphic design, I've switched my focus and am studying art. I love learning and trying new things, balanced with a quest for mastery in the things I'm most enthusiastic about. My primary focus is painting landscape in oil. I keep an art journal of my journey at amylamp.blogspot.com.
