Cashiers Plein Air Festival 2012
I just returned from the Cashiers, NC festival, sadly leaving the cool mountain weather and gorgeous scenery behind. Here's a few camera shots from the trip....
Above, the Cashiers Village Commons; the center of activity throughout the week, where the opening and closing receptions were held, and where we displayed our paintings for the public throughout the week. What a great venue.
...here's a view of local landmark, Whiteside Mountain......I had the pleasure of seeing a similiar view each day while having breakfast on the deck of my wonderful host family's home. I painted this mountain from a different angle during the festival.
This is Bridal Veil Falls in nearby Highlands; where you can drive underneath. One of the artists painted it from an underneath/looking up view. Another falls nearby, Dry Falls, is a stronger and more dynamic waterfall which you can walk underneath; but it was temporarily closed.
I was pleased and grateful to sell all my paintings, (8), for the week and pick up a 3rd place prize as well. Thanks to the Cashiers volunteer organization, to my host family, and to the wonderful community participation during this unique and wonderful event.
p.s. I'll try loading some Cashiers painting pic's when i get a minute. Also, some dates on upcoming classes/workshops.....stay tuned....thanks!
