"Morning Haze" ©

Tomorrow I hit the road for Carmel to paint in the 20th Annual Art Festival.  I have a car full of frames,  two easels (one for back up), a case of water, tons of paint, panels and brushes.  The event is one, where your canvases are stamped at the start, you paint for a period of time and hang your two best paintings for bidding and sales.  We are allowed to paint the surrounding area from Big Sur to Monterey and more.  Calvin Liang will be the juror of awards and the paintings will be available for sale online and live Saturday and Sunday.  The artists are allowed to replace the sold paintings with new pieces that were painted during the week.  It's pretty exciting and they give you a cool hat.  

 This painting was painted last year after the event.  The scene is looking across Highway 1 from Monastery Beach very early in the morning.  On Monday I will post new paintings from the week.

YES! I always learn so much while participating in these events. The locations to paint are endless and truly some of the best painting scenes on the planet. I am sure the Grand Canyon was even more beautiful and I can't wait to hear about it.
