Plein Air Easton!

I had a great time at the Plein Air Easton! event. Al and Jess from the Avalon Foundation were great and it was well run top to bottom.  I was thrilled to receive an honorable mention award(see mug shot above) from judge Tim Newton of the Salmagundi Club in NY for my painting "Grey Goose Sunset". This painting was also part of the "Vanishing Landscape" category. I painted this subject once in the morning and once at sunset to capture the obvious and subtle differences in light and composition. I also did a radio interview while painting the morning painting.

I also participated in the quick draw paint out which Erin and I dubbed the "rain out". It was an incredible deluge for about half the time we had to paint but it was loads of fun. As you can see from the pic above I am thoroughly enjoying myself!

One of the best parts of an event like this is meeting new artist friends and reaquainting with old ones. I had the opportunity to do both at Easton.



  1. Your work is inspiring.
    And looks like you’re a real trooper also.
    Way to hang in there.

  2. Thanks Jim,
    Yes, it was quite a challenge!
