2011 City of Hillsboro Plein Air Event

The City of Hillsboro Plein Air Event ended today with a reception and award ceremony at the Walters Cultural Arts Center.  My oil painting won 2nd Place in the Landscape division; it was painted at Jackson Bottom Wetlands.  It was a good event and weather conditions were near perfect most of the time.  About 40 artists participated.  Many of us knew each other and I want to thank those who walked by me as I was painting, and offered words of encouragement.  There were 3 painting categories:  Landscape, Cityscape, and a Quick Draw Figurative, and all of the submitted paintings were excellent.  Kitty Wallis, in the photo with me, was the judge.  As many of you know she is a nationally recognized artist and the creator of Wallis art paper. -Janet Amundson-Splidsboel  SOLD
