Sadly I forgot to take a location snap so it's included here after being turned in.
Here's a shot of Missouri artist Nyle Gordon at work. This would be my pick if I were judging.
This is my morning effort before turning in my two selections for judging. Of course it clouded over almost immediately so a lot of it was memory work. It started raining after I shot it.
Picking two was difficult. The majority of the work was town scenes so I put in one of those and a rural landscape to "bracket" my chances...curious if it will pay off. There's a picnic/awards announcement tonight. There's A LOT of good work at this show. It's quite intimidating. Tomorrow morning is the quick paint and they're forecasting rain so it could be interesting...all in all though the weather has been quite pleasant. And Mineral Point has many good points...could be a post in itself.
