Cedarburg Plein Air Event Awards

A few weeks ago 167 artists participated in the 12th annual Cedarburg Plein Air Event.  Artists leave the comfort of their studios and paint directly from life, in all kinds of weather.  This year brought us high, gusty winds and extreme heat. 
Often, the best part of these events are the people you meet.  I enjoyed getting to know a young farm couple who are such hard workers and great parents.  Meeting a delightful woman at the strawberry patch who has been picking berries there for 35 years.  And, while painting ducks, I learned that male ducks have a curled feather on their tail....who knew??? 

To top it off, I was honored to receive two awards this year.  An honorable mention for "Chicken Dance" and 1st Place for the Port Washington Paint Out "Whitecaps at Southshore Beach."
