Third Place! Rivertown Plein Air Paintout-Sept. 12, 2009

Rivertown Plein Air Paintout - Antioch, CA

I was pleasantly surprised to take Third Place with my pastel of "Painters At The Antioch Pier" (below left) and both of my pastel works (including "View of the Antioch Bridge" - below right) sold that evening!!

Rivertown Plein Air Paintout in Antioch was an interesting challenge. It was a dark and stormy morning with big rain drops and lightning dropping from the sky throughout the early part of the day. Painters gathered at Lynn House Gallery to register their canvases and paper and spread out over a designated area of Old Rivertown (including the Marina) to paint.

Paintings were later displayed in the Lynn House Gallery (until October 3rd) and awards given out during the evening Artist's Reception. Many thanks to Diane Gibson-Gray and Mark Roberts and members of the Board of the Arts and Cultural Foundation of Antioch (special thanks to Karen James-Smith).
