Third place winner!

Down to the water, 11 x 14, oil on linen

Went to the preview party/show opening of the Third annual Havre de Grace plein air painting competition this afternoon with hubby. The above painting won me the third place! The judge said he likes the simplicity of it. This is my first time to be in any plein air painting competitions, so I'm very happy about that.

Havre de Grace is really a nice small town to visit. It's quiet and charming. Got many old victorian houses and, of course, the water, bridges, boats, and boatyards. It's a very friendly town, and parking is easy and mostly free. It has a really nice atmosphere. And for us painters, lots of things to paint.
