Plein Air at the Utah State Fair

The Utah State Fair had a "Quick Draw" 
event today - a competition en plein air.

I took up the challenge and painted under a 
hot September sun. Having gone through 
three water bottles I still felt over heated!

The hot asphalt heated the soles of my
tennis shoes and I kept having to prance
around (I must have looked funny).

The artists were supposed to turn in their paintings by 3:30
but I yielded to the heat and whimped out around 2:15 pm.

It was one of those "don't care anymore" moments. Ha-ha!

Here's my painting. I received a third place ribbon and cash 
prize in the professional division. Yay!
