11 people signed up for the event and met at the Millikin Homestead for a demo on use of oil paintinng for Plein Air on Sunday June 25. MH co-sponsored the event with Barn Colony. Anthony Collins demonstrated his approach by using a picture he had taken of a farmer's market. It was good that MH allowed us to do the demo inside the house, as the weather was hot and windy. 9 of the 11 participants then had all week to paint various scenes in and around Decatur. The judging was done on the 3rd floor of the Madden Art Center because July 1 was immediately after the heavy rainstorm that knocked out power and downed a tree at theMH. Annette Russo was the judge and had the participants input to choose the winners.
