The gala last night was beautiful, all the amazing plein air paintings of Owensboro were display and looked marvelous. The Owensboro Art Museum did a fantastic job. The paint out was part of their annual fundraiser. The artist who took Best of Show was Larry Rudolech, and his work was very deserving of the award. There was over 20 artists competing for awards. I didn't place but I had a wonderful time and I met a lot of artists and patrons of the arts. If you haven't visited Owensboro, you should. The park on the river has wonderful water features. the whole park is beautifully designed. The weather was windy and cold but that just makes for some good stories to tell. I plan to do it again next year.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
