My first "Quick Draw" painting event....


Saturday was the "Quick Draw" competition of Camp Hill's plein air event.  It was my first experience with a timed painting competition (2 hours from blank canvas to framed painting) and I loved the intensity and excitement of it all. Seeing all the finished works presented side by side was also a thrill.  There were many great paintings and I was very surprised when the judge picked mine.

I am glad I thought to take this picture.  The painting sold a half hour later.
