The 6th Annual Plein Air Convention & Expo took place in San Diego April 25-29. It was my third time attending PACE and it was just as exciting, educational and fun as ever! My favorite locations for the event so far have been in California—first in Monterey, and this time in San Diego. There is just nothing like being by the sea.
One of the highlights of PACE is the art show, which is open to the public, and features paintings by PACE faculty and attendees. It is always a fabulous show and a great opportunity for collectors (I missed a great opportunity by not reserving an easel in the show before they were all taken—an unfortunate learning experience I will not repeat!).
Here are a few of the paintings that were in the show that first day by some amazing artists that I especially loved:
