Maynard Dixon Country 2014

The Maynard Dixon Country show comes together once a year in Mt. Carmel, Utah. This year's event is Sept, 5-7, 2014.  This art show features 33 of some of the best known artists from across the country.  Now in its 16th year, this annual event is gaining national acclaim.  If you are an art lover, it is a must see show.  These four paintings are my entries in this year's Maynard Dixon Country.

Canyons in the Sky, 22x30'' watercolor


Morning Layers, 18x36 watercolor

Desert Shadows, 14x18'' oil


Wind Chill, 18x22'' oil

The second day of the show opens at 10:00 am with a crowd of people trying to see all of what is called the Wet Painting Show.  This show takes place in Maynard Dixon's historic studio.  Here are a few photos from last year's wet painting show.

The crowd gathers awaiting the 10:00 entry to the wet painting sale.
