Paint Around Town – Plein Air Event – Saline, Michigan – July 2009

Over 25 artists participated in this event. Toni was awarded Best of Show for her pastel painting ‘Light into Dark’.

Early morning registration was at the Saline Mill. Since it was a rainy morning, Toni climbed to the 3rd floor of the old mill, carefully stepping over odds and ends of mill paraphernalia. Turning a corner in the dim darkness, she discovered a step ladder lit only by the light coming in from the window. She painted till noon, feeling a bit like Andrew Wyeth. It was a great morning and she stayed dry.

Paint Around Town was co-sponsored by AAWA, Saline Mills, Two Twelve Arts Center and The Saline Downtown Merchants Assoc.
