Well, I left Seagull Landing about a week ago. I must say, it is looking fine! Aside from a few trips to Apalachicola (one of my favorite places on the planet) and Plein Air events, I cleaned and scrubbed that house… it is more than ready for our busy summer rental season.
But I digress.. this post is supposed to be about the Forgotten Coast Plein Air 2015. I am so glad that I was able to attend some of the events and be there for this awesome week. Artists and visitors from all over the country, with some international folks sprinkled in, were there. The talent I witnessed of the Plein Air artists was just superb.
Here are some pictures I took during the week:
Quick draw contest in Apalach on May 2
I took a two hour private painting class with the incredible Katie Dobson Cundiff (who, by the way, won second place in the Quick Draw!). This is my painting, not too shabby but I had a lot of help!!
Lunch and learn with Charlie Hunter. His method of monochromatic painting was so interesting to watch, and produced such a lifelike image. Very inspiring.
Full moon painting at the lighthouse in Port St. Joe.
Lunch and learn with Shelby Keefe in the Windmark Village center. Great watching her pull together this still life painting.
A very talented artist (my sister in law!) working at a Painting Station on the Apalachicola riverfront.
And last but not least, here are some thoughts about this past week’s Plein Air from the local newspaper, the Star:
I’m looking forward to attending next year’s Forgotten Coast Plein Air event!!
