|"DuBois Home In Spring" (oil on panel, 14"x11")|
The quick draw was scheduled to begin at 9am with an 8am checkin time. Keep in mind, I'm still on central time, and daylight savings kicked in that morning. After 3 intense days of painting, we were all exhausted.
I found a perfect shady spot, set up and waited for the horn to sound. I have to be honest, I wouldn't call this a "quick draw." At 3 hours, it was more of a "quickish" draw. Many painters did more than one piece during the time. I was set up near the parking lot and the restrooms, so I had a steady stream of visitors and gave a number of impromptu teaching sessions. Everyone visiting was a pleasure to meet and had a wonderful time.

In the end, I was pleased with the outcome of the piece, and ready for the final show of the event.
