Every year, the artists who show in the Governor's Art Show in Loveland, Colorado are invited to paint a piece of art during a "plein air" event. The work must be painted in just 2.5 hours and is later put up for auction as a fundraiser for the Loveland Rotary Club who sponsors the Governor's show. This year they invited artists who were not accepted to be in the show. That includes me!
Come out to downtown Loveland and check out the painters working fast and furious. We will all have balloons flying above our easels and be located within walking distance of the Re-fine-d Gallery on 225 East 4th Street. Call or check in at the gallery for our approximate locations. At 2:00 much of the work will be auctioned off to raise money for the Rotary activities throughout the calendar year with starting bids of $100.
In the thumbnail you can see Pam Osborn holding the "plein air" piece I did in May of 2015. The event was held at her historic farm and she bought my piece at the auction!
