I had a fabulous time at the 23rd Annual Carmel Art Festival in May. All four of my paintings found new homes and one received two awards! The weather even cooperated. All paintings were created during the three days of the event and were fresh off the easel. For a plein air event such as this, we do not bring paintings with us, we do the work on site.
"Beauty And The Beach" by Gretha Lindwood, 9"x18" pastel painted en plein air, a French term meaning in the open air. I am very happy to announce this painting received two awards at the Carmel Art Festival for 2016…Best Pastel AND Honorable Mention! And it sold.
