July 16 – 21, 2019

80 artists came to the Questa area and painted for 4 days and then participated in a two day show in Red River! It was great fun with workshops, demonstrations and lots of social activities. The two day show was held at the Rail Haus Theater with over 260 paintings hung and divided into four categories. This painting, Sunset Over Wild Rivers took First Place in the Landscape division. What a surprize and honor!

This first place winning painting was done on the first evening of the festival. I was dead tired but got into the Element and went out to Cebolla Mesa. This was a fast, easy painting. I was chasing the sun, as they say. the light slipped away with beautiful color!

Another painting done during the festival of the Questa mountains looking east from St Anthony’s Church. I called it Questa Plaza. Happy to say that it sold as well!
