"Madrona Shadows" Plein air landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Madrona Shadows"  6x12 oil on panel    Sold


November 30th was my last blog post!  A lot has happened over the last couple months including great family get-togethers over the Holidays. Hope you had an inspirational Holiday season!  

The above painting won the First Place Award at the Plein Air Washington Artists big Winter Show in February!  Big thanks to the good folks at the Cole Gallery in Edmonds WA and to the judge of awards, Kimball Geisler for this honor! The competition was stiff and the gallery packed at the opening reception. Kimball did a good job explaining his choice for awards and made everyone who participated feel pretty good about the work presented. Many paintings were sold and Edmonds continues to be a destination for art lovers.

I am in the process of writing a more thorough blog post about the show and the workshop that followed with Kimball Geisler as instructor. You can link to it HERE
