KOPE participation 2013

Surrounded by Sunflowers
8 x 16 in., oil on panel

The show for the Kerrville Outdoor Painter's Event in Kerrville, Texas, in which I took part earlier this month, came to a close this weekend.  At the close, I was able to get some better photos of the pieces I entered (the ones I took initially were, frankly, terrible quality, so I haven't posted them), but I'll post the new ones over the next week.  This was the first painting I did during the competition; I kept all of them in this 1:2 format for the remainder of the week.

Best of Show win!

With my winning painting, Three in a Row at KOPE Saturday night

I'm still grinning after my Best of Show finish at Kerrville Outdoor Painter's Event this weekend in Kerrville, Texas.  I'm honored that one of my paintings received first place (!) -- there were so many excellent plein air pieces displayed by the group of participating artists --I was just happy to be there!  Thank you to everyone at KACC for another well-run and fun week, and to everyone in Kerrville who so kindly thanked us for being there.  It's great to paint in such a friendly town!
