Saturday afternoon was the quick draw event on the grounds of Park McCullough, it was gorgeous, a perfect day.
We are standing in the rose garden of the estate. John decided to paint in the garden. I have to say the painters at this event were really great people...haven't met such a nice group at an event before- really supportive.
Hui Lai is checking her gear before heading out.
This 1938 Dodge was parked in a great spot.
The Lions club set up food tents so we wouldn't fade away to nothing as we painted to make the deadline.
Frank Constantino held a quick meeting for the painters in the carriage barn to lay out the rules.
I choose to paint the 1920 Ford.
Visitors came by the entire time we painted. They loved watching the quick draw.

The finish lines looms! What is this new habit I have of one hand on my hip while painting? To get it out of the way? So I won't grab a brush and start in with two hands ? Thank you Marcus for the great pictures !
