In May I participated in the Madison Artists Guild Plein Air Paint Out. Madison is a great town for plein air painters. There are beautiful subjects to paint everywhere you look and I had a wonderful time. At the end of the day all the completed paintings were judged and cash prizes were awarded. I was honored with second place and $60 for my watercolor called "Afternoon Dream". The owner of the house which I painted actually bought the painting from me. I had a fun time painting in Madison and it was great to go home with some money in my pocket.

I identify more and more with the American scene painters of the 1930's and 40's like Charles Burchfield, Edward Hopper, and Grant Wood. The stories they tell in paint fit in well with the times we are living in now.
