This week has been filled with firsts-
-my first paint out ever
AND
-my first 'first place' award in a outdoor competition!

I was beyond thrilled to receive this award from juror
whose work I have admired for years.
Click on his name to view his website, wonderful color
and lush brushwork.
Thank you Don!

I was really delighted and very surprised to get this award, but I'll never forget the look of surprise on Don's face when I walked up to receive the award.  The expression on Don's face said-
"who is this woman impostor trying to claim Bruce's award". 
Priceless!

I have wanted to try these paint outs since I got back from Europe,
and decided to enter Paint the Town in nearby Marble Falls.
It was a well done event to promote the arts in the area and I owe a big
thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard for the event.
Thank you Bill and company!

Wow- I wasn't expecting all the pressure and of
course the weather predicted thunder storms.
But I managed to get out early for this one on the first day and it didn't rain till later:)

The Blue Bonnet Cafe has been open since 1929 and is a Texas icon,
complete with Pie Happy Hour.
These folks are maringue magicians!

I promise your mouth will water.
The famous Texas blue bonnets were in full bloom in their front garden so it was the perfect time to paint this iconic cafe.

The painting sold to the owners and it was one big happy family.
Another big thank you!

  5. There might some different approaches according to place or knowledge. Your skills depends on how you got an opportunity and where you have trained. Personal or professional training might distinguish between each other.
