rehoboth


(7x11)
WWII gun tower, Gordon's Pond

Last weekend I participated in a plein air painting event in Rehoboth, Delaware, with my friend Shelby. There were 30 painters: 26 oil painters and 4 watercolorists. At the show Sunday, oil painters took the three ribbons, as well as two of the three honorable mentions: the third went to Shelby for a beautifully simple small painting of untouched washes of Gordon's Pond.
I liked my two submissions--which I forgot to photograph!--a small marsh painting and a larger one of rooftops; they'll be on display in Rehoboth for a month.
The weather mostly held out for us--though we got a soaking Friday afternoon--and we met some nice people and wonderful artists, including Shelby Keefe. of Milwaukee, who won 1st place.

Thanks for sharing your photos - all will make great paintings. I like your painting very much (too bad oils took all the prizes!!); it says WET and FRESH.
