Today was the great event known as Quick Draw.  Part of the Easels in Frederick activities, it involved 70 artists all painting within 6 blocks of downtown Frederick streets, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. A whistle sounded to signal for the artists to begin, and they quickly began sketching and planning their compositions.  I walked the entire six block area along Market, Patrick, and East Streets (at Shab Row) at least twice over, taking one or more photos of each artist.  The weather could not have been more perfect.  Not too hot (yet), low humidity, and some puffy white clouds in a blue sky. Not thrilled by Quick Draw An Azure Sky After the whistle blew to signal the end, the artists brought their canvases to Memorial Park so that they could be judged.  I ended up buying one of the paintings, by artist Susan Lynn.  She was one of the juried artists for Easels. Dick Blick's best customer! Christina Body  It was a great event, and now that Easels is over, it will be back to life as normal -- whatever that is. Off to NY tomorrow for a Finger Lake vacation!
