2217 Strand, Suite 107-B, Galveston Island, Texas

Brushes By the Beach Plein Air 2021 Winners

From our Juror Randall Cogburn,

     "It was a pleasure to see the artwork created for this show. A handful of the art pieces stood out to me and just kept saying "pick me". There were others that almost but not quite lacked that special something.               Those who paint plein air knows that painting outdoors is tough. There is a lot of things on your mind while painting - the light, the composition, the medium, the mood of the view, even casual passer-bys and mosquitos. 

        For those who didn't receive an award this time, it only gets better the more you paint. All I ask of you is to get back out there and work on improving your painting skills. 

     Thank you to all the artists for entering a juried show, I extend my appreciation and recognition of your work.  I hope everyone had a great time painting outdoors!

McKinnon Associates

 Third Place Award

"Galveston Alley Way" by Arthur Deatley, 

 Acrylic,  12" x 16"

"Great urban scene vibe. Painting highlights the lighting and composition of an aged alley.   The slightly off kilter drawing lends to the paintings believability."
