As the sun is just beginning to clear the horizon, Jeremy Sams is heading out for his day's work.
These days he's spends much of his time doing Plein Air Painting -- painting a subject where he finds it.
Sams will be one of 30 nationally-known artists competing in the first annual "Piedmont Plein Air Paint-out." They will be painting scenes around the area.
