Quick Draw in Creede
Sunday's Quick Draw and auction closed the painting portion of Taste of Creede. Artists had 1 hour to do a painting and because of the intermittent rain we all gathered under the auction tent and most of us painted from sketches. Charlie Ewing, Kris Gosar, and Randy Pijoan were 3 who painted a model. The top photo shows Kris with both his painting and his model who was a passerby drafted for the occasion.
Below that is Sue being interviewed by Steven Quiller and her painting of an old truck, recognized by locals as the one rusting out just up the road. Next, David Mongomery's piece, enlarged from a small work painted the day before. At the bottom is the collection of watercolor pieces, each of which became the center of the most heated bidding and at least 2 topped out at 4 figures. Wow! Let's hear if for watercolors.
