Winner at Plein Air Easton

"Talbot County Landscape" (16x20) Second Place Winner

I just returned from Plein Air Easton in Easton, Maryland where 58 artists painted for a week in some pretty extreme weather. It wasn't quite as hot as last year's event, but upper 90's with high humidity was still exhausting. Last year I blogged (whined) about my gear being lost by Fed Ex for the first 2 days of the event, then sleeping on the airport floor in North Carolina where I was stranded on the way home, but I still had a good time... Anyway, seeing old friends, meeting new ones and staying with my host family, the Tremain's was a great return treat, and taking home the Second Place prize with several sales was icing on the cake...beautiful country and great fun -- can't wait til next year!


  1. Eric,

    Congratulations on the award.

  2. Toutes mes félicitations pour les ventes et ce trophée... qui valaient bien quelques sacrifices !
    Une très jolie peinture remplie de sérénité.

    De gros bisous et si je ne trouve pas un petit moment avant mon départ pour vous faire un coucou, sachez que je serai de retour à la mi-septembre.

  3. Yeah! Looks like you were greatly graced with some recognition. Well deserved and sounds like your time there was well worth your hard efforts. Hope to hear more of your times before long.

  4. Congratulations, Eric! (I can see why this painting got an award...!)
