Tidbits about our artists

I am always pleased to have our artists' talents recognized but I have to say the most recent honor extended to Kirk McBride and Lynne Lockhart is one of the best. During the summer they were invited to paint in the Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational. This is a BIG deal! Laguna Beach, CA is the center of the plein universe and this event is THE most prestigious plein air event in the country. Artists cannot apply for this event - they must be invited. There are 50 artists - almost all from CA. Lynne decided not to participate in the actual event - I don't blame her for not enjoying pressure painting! But Kirk will be painting his heart out along the beaches, canyons and streets of Laguna Beach. From what I can tell there are only 2 East Coast artists painting. I hope they send some pictures to post. Laguna Beach Plein Air Invitational
