SLO Museum of Art Show Preview

After a great week of painting (although, lots of work and some tough, 100-degree weather), my paintings for the San Luis Obispo Plein Air 2012 show at the SLO Museum of Art are ready to go! I need to choose three of these five for the show. I’ve listed them in order of my favorites first. What do you think?

[Update 10/5]: you’ve all convinced me, the last painting below (sunset) is in the show! Thanks for your feedback. It’s really difficult to judge my own work.

San Luis Obispo Plein Air, 2012

I’m looking forward to painting next week on the central coast of California for the San Luis Obispo Plein Air Exhibition at the Museum of Art there.  It’s such a beautiful place to paint: coastal scenes, wineries, golden hills of oaks–they have it all.  So if you you’re in the area, say hello!  The show opens Friday, October 5th, and just runs through the weekend. If I have time, I’ll post work during the week and share my experience.  It’s scheduled to be in the 90’s next week, so I’ll probably paint along the coast. 🙂

2012 San Luis Obispo Plein Air Festival

I will be participating again this year in the San Luis Obispo Plein Air festival at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, October 1-7.  I usually choose one area to focus on…not sure what it will be.  In year’s past, I’ve focused on Avila Beach (cove) and the Rocky Point area (see below).  Any suggestions? Let me know!

Here are works from previous years in this show.  The painting below “Glowing Bluffs” will be my featured painting in the museum the week leading up to the show.
