1st Place Award - PAINT CORSICANA

Last weekend was spent doing my favorite activity...painting en plein air! Corsicana is about 40 miles south of Waxahachie so it was an easy day trip to participate in this fun, fun event. What made it even more fun is winning the 1st place award. About 20 really good painters competed in the 2-day event. The 1st day I completed 2 paintings: : Corsicana Skyline and Navarro County Courthouse. It was a long day; didn't get home till about 6pm. The next morning, decided to paint in the downtown area; the light was just right and completed painting #3: Saturday in Downtown Corsicana.

This is the 2nd year for Corsicana Art League to sponsor a paint out and the event was a great success, with a well attended wine & cheese reception, nice cash awards, and a few sales (I sold 2!). Plans are already underway for next year and expanding the painting period to a week! WooHoo...can't wait! The exhibition will be on display at the Corsicana Visitor's Center until the week of October 19th.
