Today was overcast and much cooler! Another artist and I painted hay bales this afternoon. This is a farm located within the city limits on the edge of a historical residential district on West Jefferson street. I’m not sure how many acres, but it has to be at least a hundred. The majestic oak & pecan trees in the midst of mowed grass & baled hay was irresistible…I had to paint it.

It won’t be easy….selecting Best in Show, 1st, 2nd, 3rd place cash awards and 10 honorable mention merchandise awards. We don’t have a total count on paintings yet – deadline is 2pm tomorrow afternoon, but as of today, more than 100 have been submitted. Winners will be announced at a BBQ buffet supper & preview for artists, event volunteers, sponsors & patrons. I’ll post the winners tomorrow night.
