2nd Street Cotter Nocturne, Baxter County

2nd Street Cotter Nocturne
8X10, Oil on Panel
This was the third painting I turned in for the White River Plein Air contest.  I painted it during the night when all of the other contest attendees were attending some kind of social thing.  I hate to say it but I really did not bother to meet or talk to any of the other artists during this event.  As soon as I had my panels marked, I was off and away and I did not really see any other artists until I turned my pieces in.
This piece won the First Timers Award.  Looking around at the work of painters who won other awards, I have my work cut out for me if I want to have a chance at winning anything in the years to come.  Lots of really great painters attend this event.


  1. Hearty congratulations on winning the award. Its a beautiful painting :)

  2. Congratulations my good friend John for the great award, your painting is very wonderful !!!
    Have a nice and creative day !!!
