Utah Plein Air Painters Show and Paint-out Hosted by Fibonacci Gallery

The Plein Air Painters of Utah gathered in St. George May 4 for a special paintout and show at the elegant Fibonacci Gallery in St. George Uah. After a morning of plein air painting amid St. George's beautiful landscapes, a group of about 10 artists set up their easels outside the gallery. Collectors watched as each artist painted a piece between 3pm and 6pm, then had a chance to bid on the paintings during a silent auction. Each artist also displayed about five other originals inside the gallery, including both plein air and studio paintings. I was fortunate to have acclaimed artist Bev Doolittle stop by and purchase one of my original plein air watercolor paintings of "the Sentinel" at Zion. It was a surprise and certainly an honor.
