The Way it Was - 3rd Place Award

This was painted north of the last painting in the hills of San Clemente. I worked on this for two afternoons while my friends Carole Gray Weihman and Wendy Franklin painted in the park just to the left of this scene. Both Carole and Wendy also received awards at the event which had over 125 artists in attendance. I was fortunate to receive a 3rd Place award at the main event for this piece.

San Clemente Sunset - Sold

This was painted at the San Clemente Plein Air in the hills above San Clemente as the sun was about to go down. I liked the atmosphere in the scene juxtaposed to the contrast in the palm trees. I received an Honorable Mention award for this piece at the main event.

Old Friend - 2nd Place Award in Quick Draw

To receive more information about this painting click here.

This was painted at the San Clemente Plein Air - Quick Draw. This was an unusual quick draw as it was 3 hours instead of the average 90 minutes. The quick draws are typically in the center of town and the artists are restricted to a certain area in order for the public to be able to watch all the artists paint. The the artists at the quick draw could paint a landscape, cityscape, a still-life or a model. Their were two models this year and I had set up ahead of time before the models arrived. I received 2nd Place for this quick draw!
