Back up to Augusta Plein Air

It seems like a long time ago when I painted in the Augusta Plein Air event.  Several of the photos show we aredressed in gloves and winter coats.  It was Cha Cha Chilly.  A superb event that I hope to be able to attend again next year.

My first ribbon in Augusta.  It was a third place, but I was ecstatic to even place in that competition.  

Pastel artist Michelle Wells.  LOTS of color to work with.  When I see a pastellist at work, I think I want to dive in and try it again.  

Raven Perry is from CA and comes to paint in the event.  During the show, she painted on her leg with Henna.  She is a super nice woman.

And this is my art camp house!  Love the Airstream.  I had several artist come by to paint it.  She always had a good side!

Across the street we were entertained with a mama fox and a slew of babies.  She was on high alert.

Marty Coulter was painting in the 'winners' event at a winery and I got permission to watch him.  He was an illustrator in his past life, and jokes about trying to break those habits.  His work always sells well.  He is an excellent painter, and a really nice guy!

This was the group I painted with at the 'private estate' paint out.  The first 20 to sign up for the festival gets to paint at a special place.  It was fabulous.  

I selected the horse stall to paint.  Of course the horses moved all over, but I painted fast and got one in.  When this was finished, the owner purchased it!  .

Curious horses.

Joan Parker and I helped with two other artist with an afternoon of kids camp.  I taught acrylic, Joan taught oil.  We had a good time.

Kathy brought us a vegan lunch.  No forks.  Joan used a plastic lid to eat!  Love her laugh.
