What a great time we all had at our annual picnic. President Stephen Dunn and Veep Lisa Deems stepped it up a notch by providing some challenges and rewards. We had two contests: a Limited Palette (one red, blue and yellow, white and burnt umber) and a Quick Draw like the “big boys” do at other Plein Air events. Not all of us get to attend those so it was a fun adventure for us newbies. Winners in the Limited Palette were: Jessica Shippee, Lisa Deems, and Kevin Arthur. And of course, the speed demon Gary Garrett won the Quick Draw. We are very grateful, or at least raffle winner Laura Schwenn is, for the fabulous array of items that Ponte Vedra Arts and Crafts donated.
