Kathy Meador will be one of the artist competing in PAINT THE TOWN.

The spring flowers are blooming, the last of the north winds have blown, and the Texas sun is just starting to reintroduce itself to long, hot days.   You know what that means????  It’s time, in Marble Falls, for PAINT THE TOWN!  Nationally recognized artist will soon be here for the 12th annual EN PLEIN AIR COMPETITION-ahem, that’s French for painting outdoors, ya’ll.   I got involved through my friend, Janey, who had a vision 12 plus years ago to bring talented artist to our little berg in the hill country.  Through the years, Paint The Town has become a blue ribbon destination for Plein Air competitors and this year, well known artist/lecturer, Suzie Baker will be the judge. The week long event (April 29-May 5) has become a great way to showcase our beautiful part of Texas and a chance for locals and out of towners to watch painters show their creativity and interpretation of beautiful vistas in our beloved hill country.  The juried artists are given locations and so many days to paint the subjects of their choice.  At the end of the alocated time, the paintings are displayed and are able to be purchased. Oh, and there’s so much more going on…..lectures, demonstrations, student participation, and my favorite, a VIP party, for those who want to get a jump start on snagging that perfect piece to add to your art collection.                                                                                   It really is a les must for your Texas Hill Country bucket list.



Be sure to see paintings from previous PAINT THE TOWNS on the wall at Del Rio Comida Deluxe


The Blue Bonnet Cafe is always a favorite subject to paint!
