5x7 soft Pastel
I spent Friday, the 29th, & Sat., 30th, in Corning, IA participating in their 11th Annual Plein Air event. I'm thrilled to announce this work won 1st Place.
I created this little jewel first thing Friday morning at Lake Icaria, just North of the community. (The competition rules stated we could paint anywhere in Adams County. ) Artist Carlene Atwater & I camped out at the lakes Lakeview campgrounds & were very happy with how clean/well maintained the facilities & park area was. A GREAT place for family fun!!!
It was exciting to see how this small community (1,500) supports the arts. Corning Art Center is maintained by volunteers and is a beautiful space. They even have an "Artist in Residence " program in place.
