Piedmont Paintout Plein Air Competition

Fall is in the air and plein air painting is here in High point, NC!. Starting today, myself and artists from all over the U.S. will gather here in High Point, NC, and try to capture the essence of the piedmont area en plein air! The “quick paint” event also begins today at 2pm.

The event culminates on Sunday with the awards ceremony and exhibit of completed works at the J. H Adams Inn from 11:30-3:30. This is a great opportunity to view some incredible artwork from some talented artists, and if you so choose, to purchase some. You can get more info here.

Below are some of my pieces from last year’s competition where I was awarded the “People’s Choice Award”.
