October Traveling

The first week of October I was in Fairfield Illinois for the plein air festival. Here are a few pictures of that very nice event.

This is the cabin we stayed in. Simply perfect. Marcia and I plus Tammie and Teddy. We had a blast.

We were asked to do a 8” square painting to be auctioned to raise money. This area was big in oil drilling, and there are lots of remnants around the community.

The first day I sketched in the alley. I love this view. I ended up painting my final facing the opposite side of the street. That was a purchase by Christy. It was the alley behind her business! She bought a painting from Spencer of the front of her shop last year. I was humbled she purchased mine this year.

This was the beginning of my nocturne . I started it at 10:00 and wrapped up at midnight. It was a subject many people liked. I could have sold it 5 times!

We had one day in a neighboring town. This was the town center.

This sweet lady watched my work while I got lunch. She teased her girlfriends she painted it! We had fun.

This was a really cool building that sold coffee and the best ice Cream! This sold to the owners. Super nice young couple. I really enjoyed painting this one. I love architecture.
