I was fortunate again to be doing this event with my friend Rachel Steely James. I highly recommend doing this type of thing with a buddy, it makes it so much more fun, plus you feel like less of a weirdo when you're painting on the side of the road! haha For both Thursday and Friday, we got early start, completed a painting in the morning, enjoyed a picnic lunch, and then found a new location for an afternoon painting. By Friday night, I was exhausted, but pleased with the four I had completed. I decided to document my journey by sharing updates and photos on my Facebook Page, so that was a fun aspect for me: I really appreciated all the feedback and encouragment I received through that!
On Saturday, I turned in all four paintings in to be judged. I won an honorable mention for my Rolling Field Painting (with cash prize) and also received a Patron Site Award for the City County Building painting. You'll see better photos of my paintings from this weekend once they come up in my blog order, they are paintings #130-134. :)
*And just in case you think I'm a bad speller (which I actually am), 'Plein air' is a French term for painting outdoors. :)
