Bridge on Beverly - Show and Quick Draw

Quick Paint submission for Plein Air Southwest Salon

The Plein Air Southwest Salon opened this weekend at the Southwest Gallery in Dallas, Texas. One of the traditions of this show is an early morning "Quick Draw" which is a timed and very public painting session. The resulting wet paintings get framed, transported, and hung in the gallery before the afternoon reception. It's a bit nerve-wracking, to say the least. This year we painted on Turtle Creek near the Dallas Country Club and I chose a scene with the clubhouse in the distance. I loved how it peeked out behind the bridge. We had a longer window of time than usual, and I really appreciated that. A big thanks to the show organizers, it was a fabulous weekend of art and friends!
