Chuck's 9 x 12 painting, "Sunny Saturday," won Second Place in the Paint the Town Quick Draw Competition in Marble Falls. The title reflects the welcomed appearance of the sun after five days of painting under cloudy skies. This Quick Draw was limited to 80 minutes start-to-finish.
May will be a “featured” month for Chuck and Barbara. Their annual Texascapes Show is on display at Fredericksburg Art Gallery throughout May. Here’s a preview of Chuck’s 30 x 40 painting “Guadalupe Mountains” that is part of the show.
Also in May, the Museum of Western Art in Kerrville is host to a large exhibition of Chuck and Barbara’s paintings. Reception for this show is May 17, 5:30-7 PM. With the Paint the Town event in the rear-view, a trip to the plein air painting, convention, and national show of Oil Painters of America in Colorado is next. Whew! What a May full….
My first painting video! All the preparation for a Quick Draw that didn’t happen turned into a perfect opportunity to make a fast-paced video. Check it out below. The painting took about 45 minutes in real time, but this was sped up in the movie for entertainment value.
