Day Three, June 3 2010

June 6, 2010


Day Three of the ECAA paint out, actually it is day six of the paint out. I missed days four and five. I showed up in Waxahachie around noon and stopped by the ECAA headquarters to check in and have a sandwich. The people in this town are so nice. I already knew I wanted to paint the grain silos at the railroad tracks. I called David Tripp and they joined me along with his friend Chris. Little did I know David’s painting will win best of show and my painting will win 1st honorable mention (5th place overall). The ECAA Paint Out of Historic Waxahachie Texas is a local event and does not exhibit the work locally or nationally.

Day Two of the ECAA paint out and  I returned to Waxahachie alone at day break to find a peaceful town on Memorial day. After a short walk around the square I decided on the rear of the Rogers Hotel. I loved the composition. The sun was rising over my shoulder creating  fire exit stair shadows on the building. I strived to show the courthouse beyond – washed out with purple-gray. I finished the painting after about 3 hours. The sun was higher in the sky and the temperature is rising fast, 99 degrees expected today. I headed back to Dallas and arrived home by noon.

 Day One of the Ellis County Arts Association Plein Air Paint Historic Waxahachie TX started with a 1 ½ hour quick draw session at 10:00am. The subject was the Town Square plus one block in each direction. After the quick draw the paintings produced were auctioned on the courthouse grounds. I feel fortunate my painting of the Farmers Market sold. Little did I know this was the beginning of one of the most exciting plein air painting events ever with over 60 really good painters and 7 straight days of painting.
