There are lots of distractions. People walk by, wondering what 40 painters are doing around the lake. An art class arrives, and some kids join us in concentrating over their easels. Boaters and paddle boarders dot the lake. A fishing class convenes in the meadow on the far side.
We finish our paintings, frame them, and turn them in for the show that begins at 1. Willow Shadows and Aspen is gifted with the Artists' Choice award.
