Los Gatos Plein AIr Festival

....heres a view of my best of show painting at the recently concluded Los Gatos Plein Air Festival.  Los Gatos is a picturesque town just south of San Francisco, and they put on a quality festival....very well organized, great venues for painting, and good interaction between the artists and community.  Below are a few other paintings from the week, and a closer view of the blue ribbon painting. (as is sometimes the case when taking pictures on the fly,  theres some distortion due to the wide angle camera lenses, etc).  Thanks for checking out my blog. Back soon. Happy 4th of July!
