We found this beautiful walkway along the Soquel Creek in Capitola, CA. Lot's of charming homes and gardens. Some are vacation rentals!!! I painted with my mother (in the foreground). Although not a part of the competition, she walked, hauled her gear, painted, and helped me out all week. 
So fun to have that time with her.

Usually during a plein air painting competition, artists are asked to paint a scene within a certain time frame. The artist sets up, and begins painting when the airhorn is sounded, and stops when the airhorn blasts at the end of the set time. Sort of like the TV show "Chopped". We had two hours to paint a scene of our choosing. This was mine.

The scene ...
The painter ...


Another painters subject ... me, my mother, and Erika.


Thanks to my fellow painters for an honorable mention!
