Plein air Richmond / painting by Mark Farina of Monterey CA.

We have a big art event happening in Richmond this week. The contest was open nationally. I entered, but didn’t get in. That’s ok. It’s hot and humid out there today, and it might get worse. I knew competition was stiff for this show.

I was glad to see so many artists in Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens today from all over the country. And I watched a demonstration by Lori Putnam. She just got here from a plein air contest in CA. where she won the prize ! Very informative free art lesson. And inspiring ! I think I’ll get some oil paints and paint like this !
