Plein Air Convention: part 4

The convention ends today with half a day of painting.

Each morning I've been getting up at 5:00 am, meeting my friend, Ray, at the bottom of the elevator, walking across the casino and and taking the elevator to the parking garage. Then we drive to Red Rock for the included breakfast and an earlybird marketing boot camp, given by the king of marketing himself, publisher Eric Rhoades.

Just this has been worth it, but the demos by some of the top plein air artists have not only been informative, but at times incredibily funny. For now on this blog, you will have to exercise your imaginations, artists can do that, right? Think Ken Auster, painting a 40" x 60" canvas in 2 hours while being heckled by Gil Dillinger, current President of Plein Air Painters of America! And fielding questions from the audience. it was amazing to watch.
