Plein Air Easton

 This past week was the annual Plein Air event in Easton. I'm told it's the largest of the Plein Air contests. Yesterday they had the quick draw contest. The artists had from 10 - 12:00 to paint something. Sandi, Gypsy and I met this guy above. It turns out he is a local guy, an art teacher in Easton. We peeked over his shoulder from time to time, checking out his progress. He just began his painting above.
Here the picture is coming along. I was like, where is he seeing these fish? Most of the artists paint the store fronts or other scenes around town.
Upon further investigation I saw he had brought his own fish to paint. He sprayed them with Fabreeze to keep the smell at bay. It was hot out.
At the end of the two hours they line them up along the street and are judged. They are also for sale. This little fishy portrait sold in a hurry. Not a bad days work for that guy.
We spent the entire day walking around. Gypsy had just gone to the groomer so she was strutting her stuff. She was exhausted by the time we got home.
