Well folks, the news lede to tonight’s post is that I was awarded “Best New Artist” at Easton this year. As picked by Steve Doherty, editor of Plein Air Magazine. Thank you Steve, your recognition was much appreciated.
Apologies for the bad photo but this is what I could get during the show.
I show up to drop off my paintings this morning and this is what I found on my wall. (ha!)
Saturday, tomorrow, will be the public QuickDraw. Over 250 pros and local amateurs are competing against each other with a huge audience watching behind your back so it will be a mad house. We are looking at a heat index of 115F by noon. Like painting in an oven. Mad dogs and Englishmen, and all that, eh?
Waddayagonnado? Guess I’ll go paint outside
Oh, and as a 2011 gala prize winner I’ll be competing in the Sunday QuickDraw for the elite brunch crowd. Another chance to paint, eh?Eating champagne mimosas and cuke sandwiches and other tasty tidbits while I push the paint around. Must remember to hold my pinky out and lift.
Kidding. It’s late. G’nite!
