It was wonderful to spend time painting with so many talented artists and have access to numerous beautiful private ranches around San Angelo, TX. Everyone was so nice, and I would highly recommend this event to artists and collectors.
This is the description from their website, "The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts welcomes 34 of the top Plein Air artists in the world to SAN ANGELO, TEXAS! The fourth annual EnPleinAirTEXAS is one of the top plein air competitions in the country and attracts award-winning artist applicants from coast to coast and from outside the U.S."
You can find tons of photos from the event on their facebook page: link
