This is my delicious 3rd Place winner at the Paint The Town Plein Air Event in Marble Falls, Texas last weekend. (This is the display inside Choccolatte's.)
I love Marble Falls. I've participated in this event several times since their first annual Paint The Town in 2007, when I took a break from my caricature booth (they had street vendors that year) to play around and paint a couple of little 4x6's...
|"At the Music Fest" (pastel, 4x6 inches) 2007, sold|
|"Main Street" (pastel, 4x6 inches) 2007, sold|
The next year I went gung-ho and painted 9 paintings in all, including this one of main street...
|"A Gray Morning on Main Street" (pastel, 5x18 inches) 2008, sold|
|"The Hanging Tree" (pastel, 18x5 inches) 2008, sold|
|"A Sunny Morning on Main Street" (pastel, 6x18 inches) 2009, sold|
In 2010 I did yet another view of Main Street, while standing on the tailgate of my truck, in the rain...
|"A Rainy Day on Main" (pastel, 7x17 inches) 2010, sold|
But I won 4th Place with this quick painting of the creek behind the school sport fields:
|"Backbone Creek" (pastel, 9x9 inches) 2010, sold|
|Untitled (pastel, 12x12) 2013, sold|
I didn't make the 2014 Paint The Town, but had a blast this year, and met lots of talented artists and old friends.
Finally (thanks for reading this long) here are some progress shots of "Candyscape"...
