National Show Pics...

Well, the Central Coast National Fine Art Competition came and went. Again, this years show was excellent with some fantastic art. Last year, I had been looking up plein air painters in California to see the level of painting and founf one I liked who ended up being in the show. This year, there was a piece from an artist in Hawaii who also posts on Wet Canvas! I need to send him a pic of his work in the show.

Sales were bad this year in the show but that was to be expected because all sales of art are way down this last year....good time for me to try getting into the art world eh? I should have gotten in back in the 70's because I've talked with artists from back then and they would tell me they couldn't paint fast enough. The one glimmer of hope is these same artists tell me to hang in there, art is cyclycle and better days will happen again.

I dropped my digital camera on my trip to Oregon and ever since when I take pics inside the bulk of them are blurred. I think I broke the combobulator in it. Anyway, here are some pics of the show that did come out...

Very long walls covered in killer art!
