PORT ARANSAS INVITATIONAL COASTAL PAINTOUT_"PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD"

I just returned from the annual "Port Aransas Coastal Paintout". I'm happy to say that my painting "FAREWELL TO GIBBS" won the "Peoples' Choice Award". Kind of an emotional piece for me, as 'Gibbs Cottages' is one of the last remaining relics of the old Port Aransas I knew growing up. It's destined to be razed to make room for the new. Can't look at them without remembering all the fun and crazy summers I had there in Port A, with my friends.

I'll show you some of my other paintings done, during the three day competition, over the next few days.
