Day two--Mt. Tabor Centennial Paint out and Exhibit

All the painters were out in force again today basking in the good vibrations of the Mt. Tabor Centennial Paint-Out. It was so much fun to meet interested onlookers and collectors! The Paint Out and Exhibit was successful on all levels. How can we begin to thank Shawn Demarest? This was her idea and she made it happen! Peter Rossing, owner of Muse Art + Design was a stellar sponsor--donating his time, the tents, prizes, and paints for everyone to try. Sales were excellent! People love Mt. Tabor Park and plein air painting. My painting from the event, "Mt. Tabor Sunset" sold during the final hour of the day. A perfect ending to a fabulous painting weekend!

Tabor (each envelope represents a painting sold!) Thanks to all involved for making it such an outstanding event!

Hi Celeste,
I came by for a visit on Sunday about 1PM.
Sorry I missed you. Glad that little sunset piece sold, it was one of my favorites of your paintings.
