Here's my painting from the Duck Pond that a few of us visited last week. Actually, I wiped out my first effort done on site and re-painted it using a photo reference and my memory. I didn't realize until the end that I forgot to put any ducks in the pond.

Tracy Wiklund brought this art show to our attention. It is a juried show with a painting submittal date of January 5, 2016. There's a $10 entry fee but there's also opportunity to sell your paintings plus there are four cash awards ranking from $300 to $100. The show runs from the end of February to April 8th. It's located in Eau Claire but is open to all Wisconsin residents and may be worth the trip. Here's the link for more information and application:

A year ago the DCPAPAs met at CamRoc Park and painted for the morning. It was green and lush and beautiful. I started this painting and finished it in the studio. I was really happy with it as it conveyed the feelings I had about the park.

We took advantage of this amazing weather and had a large turnout for the last outing of the season. And who knows, if this weather holds maybe we'll have another outing before Thanksgiving. I promised a painting with some orange and red in it. This will have to do.
