A little over a week ago I was one of 13 participating artists in the Just Plein Fun event organized by Debra Huse Gallery that took place on Balboa Island. All of us painted in and around the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, CA for a week dropping off our paintings at Debra Huse Gallery daily. It was exciting to see the new work hung on the walls every day.

At the end of the week there was a timed two hour Brush Off along Marine Avenue. After the Brush Off all of us framed our paintings and took them over to the gallery to see the final show. Jean Stern, director of the Irvine Museum, was the judge for the show.

The award winners -
1st Place - Rita Pacheco Fun Zone
2nd - Michael Clements 'View from Washington St. Pier'
 3rd - Toni Williams 'Diamond Alley'
HM - Mark Fehlman 'Our Little Paradise'
HM - Michele Byrne 'Castle Contest on Ruby'
Brush Off - Mike Carroll 'Call of the Bells'

The Just Plein Fun Exhibition and Sale will run through Sept. 1, 2014.
