This was the last painting I did for the show. It's not bad, but I didn't quite capture what I was after. This was painted in the late evening light, but the values and colors are just not right for the situation. I have found that you really have to pump certain colors to capture that mood of fleeting evening light. The trees are my favorite part of this painting.
The show was overall a success for the museum so I believe they will expand the show next year and put more resources into it. I know that they will plan on making the show last a month to accomodate everyone who wants to see it. I hope that translates into more sales. Even though I only made one sale, that is all I usually sell in this show anyway. I think my strategy of taking it slower absolutely paid off, since I nabbed two awards this time. I usually do quite well with awards up there, come to think of it. It felt better to win the awards this year for some reason. I think it's because I hold the venue in high regard, and I felt the awards were pretty fair and balanced.
I am glad to see the new approach to plein air events working so far.
