Our neighboring community sponsors an annual event for artists to paint and draw the city, it's business district, churches, wonderful old houses, etc. There were over 150 participants in their 8th annual plein aire event. I decided to paint this lovely home in the area, with the early morning sun casting interesting shadows on it's face. The biggest 2 challenges for me were the hot sun shining on my back, neck and canvas, and the constantly changing arrangement of the shadows on my subject. I had a great time and had fun seeing all the entries at the award ceremony later in the afternoon. The collection of paintings will hang at a nearby gallery for the next week.
