Paint Historic Waxahachie Plein Air Event - Painting #1
It was very windy, as it was for the entire 4 days I painted for this year's event. But my new easel held up great against 40 mph gusts. I felt like this turned out pretty well so I was encouraged to trek on. The next morning was the "Quick Draw" event on the square with several other participants. After 90 minutes of painting we were required to stop and place them up for bid during a silent auction within the confines of the local Farmers Market. A truly silent auction, as in very few people around to bid because of the extremely windy conditions. Pottery blowing over and shattering, canopies flying away. Quite a scene. My quick draw wasn't finished and I wasn't thrilled with it but someone did bid on it.
