Margo 's comment on The Two Plein Air Artists
|40 months ago|
Thanks, Keith, for shedding some light on a thorny debate. I had just returned from a plein air event in Iowa when I read your post. The organizer was very clear in stipulating that all work submitted for display (and cash prizes, and for sale to the public) had to be completed on site. I lost one day to travel, and one day to torrential downpours. I wasn't able to finish a piece before the deadline. When I viewed some of the other artists' truly gorgeous and polished works, it didn't even dawn on me that there were some midnight motel machinations going on. Thank you again for the valuable insight.
