Last Saturday the LPAPA had a paint out at the Newport back bay.  Paul Kratter was the signature artist who was there hosting the paint out.  He did a one hour demo which I missed because I was on the wrong end of Back Bay road.  I hiked in 5 miles to find the group already painting out of the backs of their cars.
There were about 10 artists who showed up for the paint out.  There was one other pastel artist.

This was the subject we all painted.  The cliffs are one of the more painted scenes in the back bay area.  Since I had traveled the whole length of Back Bay road I had the chance to scout out other painting locations. 
After four hours I was finished.  I was not the last to leave but it was getting close. I thought Paul did a good job.  He spent time with everyone.  I thought the type of advice was well considered to the skills of the painters at the paint out.  He even let one painter use his set up

Here are some pictures from the opening of "In the Light of Day".  It was a nice opening.  The curator did a good job at organizing the hanging of the paintings.  The opening was well attended and it seemed like I had a number of interested people in my work.
