The Utrecht Event

This was my first year at the Utrecht Event "Plein Air in the Pearl". It was easy to park (Sunday... no fees) and I didn't have any trouble finding the spot because Kelly from Utrecht sent out clear instructions. It was fun to talk to the passers-by and to see what the other painters chose to paint. I did a small painting of a corner building. I meant to do a larger version of it, but there was a huge sign right in front of me, blocking some of my view. Not an ideal situation. I abandoned the idea of the larger painting, but I just may return and paint it again....from a better vantage point. The big surprise was that I won the drawing for a beautiful Utrecht umbrella. I will be using it a lot this summer!
