La Veta Plein Air Event

The LaVeta- Cuchara area in southern Colorado is so beautiful - being there to paint for this plein air event was pure pleasure. Above is the West Spanish Peak; there are 2 and they dominate the landscape. If you look carefully at the top photo, - behind and above the left, foreground bank of trees, up to a green valley nestled in the arms of the mountain and, not quite covered with the shadow of the great stone "vein" - that is where the lower photo was taken. Sue McCullough and I painted from that spot and below she stands by her First Prize piece of that view.

 Here, David Montgomery and Kathy Hill discuss, what else - art, while looking at Sue's painting of the 2 Fox Cabins and Dave's piece sitting above it - which- unfortunately, was not delivered in time for the 2pm competition deadline.
Curt Gillispie won 2 Place with his piece "Painter in the park", Kathy Hill stands with her 3rd Place painting of the Spanish Peak and Aaron Fanning won Honorable Mention for his triptych paintings. Click on any of the photos to view them larger.

Congratulations to all the award winners!! Even if it was hot, they didn't let it interfere with painting...and painting very well. A nice variety of subject and style is represented.
