Quickdraw Setup

This morning about 60 artists gathered downtown for the “Quickdraw”. For those of you not familiar with this, it is a timed plein air competition. We had 90 minutes to create a painting, 15 minutes to frame, awards are given and a live auction of the paintings closes the event. I was surprisingly calm…joked around with artists before the event and selected my composition and painting spot about 20 minutes before the start.
I was happy with the result and the sale price at auction ($500, half of which is donated to the local art organization). So many great paintings didn’t meet their minimum bid…lucky day!
