Third Place RAM 4th Annual Paint Out "Quick Draw"!
Saturday, February 28th, I participated in the 4th Annual Quick Draw, affiliated with the Riverside Art Museum and PAAR (Plein Air Artists of Riverside). My painting, "RAM from Fire Station #1", a 10"h by 8"w oil won THIRD place in the judging!
In honor of the 80th year anniversary of the beautiful Julia Morgan building, 30 artists took part in the "quick draw". Each artist was to all paint the Riverside Art Museum from our chosen vantage point. We began at 9am, and quit promptly at 11:30am. This is a somewhat stressful scenario, to say the least! This painting, and the other artists' renditions will be displayed at the Riverside Art Museum through April 18, with an opening artists' reception on Thursday, March 5th. I will be there! I hope you can make it also!
