Show Updates!

This show season has been phenomenal!  I was blessed greatly at each event in many different ways.  I always enjoy attending the Plein air painting event at VINS in VT.  It doubles as a girls week camping with my mom and the Quechee area is beautiful.  Not to mention the birds at VINS!  I received 3rd place in the quick paint and had a blast painting.  The following Saturday I attended the Plymouth Fall Art Show.  It is always like an old home day getting to see and catch up with many familiar faces and friends!  I also received a Best in show for one of my mixed media pieces!  Here are a few pictures to review these events!

Adirondack Harvest Plein Air Festival, Ticonderoga, NY

Last weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in another great plein air painting event!  The Ticonderoga, NY area is a place full of beauty and history. There was a variety of subject matter to paint and the weather was great!  Plus we camped on Lake George!  The views were amazing right at the campground! Of course I painted non-stop!  At the Opening I received an honorable Mention on "Champlain View." Thank you to everyone at the Ti Arts Gallery for organizing and sponsoring this event!  Here are a few pictures from the weekend.
My group of paintings all framed and ready to deliver to the gallery!
