Consider the scene of downtown Annapolis: a blue September sky, a smattering of sailboats and summer flowers, crisp bright flags, narrow streets winding back into Maryland history. Look closer, you'll also see 25 artists. Like hummingbirds collecting nectar, these professionals have scattered through the town to gather what they can of the light, the mood and the essence of this particular day. The artists are part of Paint Annapolis 2004, a celebration of the "plein air," seize-the-light landscape painting that distinguished the Impressionists from preceding generations of artists who worked inside.

Some artists spend weeks, even years, on their masterpieces. But plein air painters complete their work in one day, battling the elements to capture light and the open air. The technique, whose results are similar to impressionism, will be on display this weekend at Paint Annapolis 2004. Spectators will see the painters map out their vision for the historic backdrop, from rough sketches to final brush strokes. Today's kickoff events feature the 25 exhibiting artists painting the Annapolis landscape from noon until sundown.

As a young girl, Jean Brinton Jaecks would sit around her family's dinner table in Severn and listen to her parents talk about nature, light and color. Her mother, Mary, was a painter; her father, Earl, created wood sculptures as a break from his job as a designer at Westinghouse. "Back in the 1960s, they began an organic garden," Jaecks recalls. "In 1961, that was unheard of. The neighbors made fun of them. " Love of the outdoors and the arts were reinforced during summer vacations, when the family would drive to Cape Ann and Rockport in Maine.

Robert Barber of State College, Pa., will be walking around downtown Annapolis today with no touristy, leisurely gait. He'll be staking out an outdoor scene worthy of the top prize in the sixth annual Paint Annapolis competition. The artist, who has won the competition three years in a row, does not think it will be hard to find. "The thing that I enjoy about painting in Annapolis is that every block has 12 paintings in it," Barber said. The Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association will host the competition from tomorrow through Sunday in Annapolis.
