Barbara Jaenicke: Creekside Reverie, winner of the August 2021 Plein Air Salon, is a modest little spot in my neighborhood along the area where I walk my dog. Some of my favorite painting subjects are often those nooks and crannies in the landscape. Mid-winter Thaw is another such zoomed-in subject. But I do live in a mountain town, where I love having the option to take it all in, as I did with February Color.
