The time has come around again for the Worldwide International Paint Out and I will be participating for the second time with other artists at the beautiful Kanapaha Gardens in Gainesville. Here is some of the work I did last year. It was my first Plein Air official event and I had a blast. I sold two of the paintings from that event. The other two are hanging at the Newberry Firehouse Art Gallery, in downtown Newberry, FL and the other is at my coop, High Springs Art Coop, on main street in High Springs. I am looking forward to doing it again. Hopefully with all this rain the flowers will be in full bloom!
The following info was taken from the garden's website .Kanapaha.org
"Local landscape artists will be gathering to create live paintings at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens. The 3 day event is part of the 11th Worldwide Artist Paint Out, sponsored by International Plein Air Painters, linking artists and locations all over the world and promoting art as a universal language that has no borders. The lush settings and vistas of Kanapaha Gardens will offer the artists an abundance of inspiration. The gardens have long been a muse for the local creative community, and hosted in 2002 one of the very first paint outs in Florida. Since then, these events have seen an explosion of popularity and patronage. Come join us! Witness the mysterious creative process as you stroll through the gardens from artist to artist. They will marvel you with their sleight of hand as they magically create masterpieces before your very eyes! "
