2010 OPA Eastern Regional Exhibition Link

I just received a notice that all the paintings in this outstanding exhibition are now in a YouTube video.

My painting is "The Monk's Alarm Clock", you'll know it by the red monks panning down to the rooster. But the works in the show are wonderful, so take a look if you have the time.

Debra Joyce Dawson of Pataskala paints White’s Mill in Athens on Saturday afternoon. She is one of the founding members of the Ohio Plein Air Society, which was holding a White’s Mill painting competition.

I took part in The White's Mill Challenge sponsored by Athens Real Estate Company, Athens, OH.

The day started out gorgeous, but with a promis of fall in the air. By the time this photo was taken, it sky had clouded over.
A woman with a video camera came by and shot video of several painters, and I wound up on YouTube.
Above is the photo that appeared in the Athens Messenger paper, and here is the link to the YouTube video of me working on the award winning painting.
There are two fellow painters in this video, and in case you don't recognize me, I'm up first.
Just beware, you too, might wind up on YouTube!
