3rd Place Winner!!
Available at the Kerr Arts and Cultural Center, Kerrville, TX

This past weekend, over 40 artists convened to paint for three days in the Texas hill country at the Kerrville Outdoor Painting Event (KOPE). We had perfect weather, worked hard, and then presented our work at a wet painting show on Saturday night. AND… I won the third place ribbon! Woo Hoo! Julie Davis took first place and Jimmy Longacre took second place. It's an honor to be in the winner's circle with these two dear friends and fabulous painters! Many thanks to the organizers and sponsors of this event; we all had a great time!

 Me, beaming with my ribbon!

Julie, Me, and Jimmy

Me with show judge Phil Bob Borman,
an incredible painter of skies and atmosphere.

Well done and well deserved, Laurel! Love your happy photos. I'm sure the other winners were quite deserving, but I would have given your painting the top award. ��

Outdoor Painting Event! The concept seems quite interesting and unique. I wish I could attend such outdoor paining NY events but not sure if they happen here. Well, all these paintings are looking fabulous and are very creative.
