This is my entry in this year's Open Air Fair Plein Air Painting Competition. Five artists went out to paint whatsoever they chose in the heat and humidity of late August in Canfield Ohio, using oils, acrylics, pastels, markers. I went to the South Ring next to the Pony Palace and painted the ring and the barns. Waited for just the right pony to come in for a practice session--this Welsh pony reminds me of Max, my gray Arab. So yes, I painted the ring, and then I painted the pony into it. The judging is happening tonight, but whether I get a ribbon or not, I am very happy with my painting! Oh, I used chalk pastels. Size is 16" x 20".
Writer of epic fantasy with a wry twist. Fond of horses, dogs, cats, canaries, falcons and draft cider. Dedicated multi-tasker, I also paint with chalk pastels.
