Wasatch Plein Air Paradise 2012

Summer Shade, 11" x 14" Oil on Canvas Panel
At the beginning of last year's plein air competition in Midway, Utah, a local rancher pulled his pickup over to where I was painting by the side of the road. He looked at me, rolled down his window and asked, "Is it that time of year again?"

Once again it's that time of year. Contestants in the main competition have all turned in their finished plein air paintings and the show opens this evening. One of my two entries is shown at the top of this blog post. You can find out more about Wasatch Plein Air Paradise 2012 at this link:

Besides the main competition and show there will be "paint outs" Monday and Tuesday, and a "quick draw" competition and auction Wednesday the 4th. These three events will take place in specific places around Heber Valley. All of the paintings created during Wasatch Plein Air Paradise will be exhibited at the Midway Town Hall at 120 West Main Street in Midway, Utah. Be sure to check out the Midway Art Association's website to see what else is going on. This is my third year in Midway's plein air event. It's a great show with works by a lot of well known regional plein air painters. Besides that, the Heber Valley area is such a wonderful place to paint!
