8th Best of Plein Air Art Show Award - Laguna Plein Air Painters Association Award


I'm completely honored to announce that my painting "Yard Workin" was awarded 3rd place at the LPAPA (Laguna Plein Air Painters Assoc.) 8th Annual Best of Plein Air Show. The show contains 45 works by some of the best landscape painters working today. Over 200 entries were submitted. It's an honor to even be included, let alone to place. 

Michael Obermeyer was the judge for the evening and if you haven't seen his work before you should click here - he's an amazing painter! I've wanted to meet him for years and finally got the opportunity after the awards presentation last night. He's and easy going guy with a great sense of humor. 

This morning my son also won an award at school so, I'm walking on cloud nine today. With all this good luck I should be out buying a Lottery ticket or something.

My painting is still available and if you want to stop by and see the show here are the details - 

Show Dates: June 7th - 27th
