During the Thanksgiving Point Plein Air Festival this year, they added a new event- "The Quick Draw". Many festivals have this event, but it was the first time at this one. It is essentially a painting race! From blank panel to framed and ready to be judged for a prize and for sale in only 2 hours. To add to the intensity of the event, we arrived late, so I went with a smaller panel and focused on a single pink zinnia. It all worked out, no prize... but an exciting time, great company, and the painting sold! My dad on the other hand took my 2 year old to Farm Country and The Dinosaur Museum all in that same less than 2 hour time period- now that is impressive!
