City View - En Plein Air Texas - Quick Draw

City View, 6 x 8, oil painting, L. Daniel © 2015

After a week of painting, we had one last painting event on Saturday morning. The Quick Draw. This is a timed painting competition - literally, a cannon boomed for our start, AND for our finish 2 hours later. Quick Draws are nerve-racking, but they always "push" me. This time I won 3rd Place and sold the painting! Woo hoo! It was a thrill and pictures are below...

Many thanks again, to all the organizers of En Plein Air Texas! They were well organized and wonderful hosts. And thank YOU, for following along with these posts. So fun. 

Me with the new owner of my painting!

Me with our Judge, Gay Faulkenberry.

Congrats, Laurel! A well-deserved award. I've loved seeing the landscape and architecture of the San Angelo area through your posts. Looks like En Plein Air Texas was a great experience.
